Flow cytometry measures phenotypic, biochemical and molecular characteristics of individual cells or particles suspended in a fluid stream. The cells flow single file past focused laser beams and light scatter or fluorescence data is collected. Tens of thousands of cells can be interrogated by a flow cytometer in a single second. Flow cytometry can be used for a variety of applications, most commonly including cell analysis or high speed cell sorting. The Scripps Florida Flow Cytometry Core (FCC) serves the Scripps Florida community as well as researchers from outside Scripps on a fee-for-service basis.
