Flow Cytometry using Microfluidics
Flow cytometry is a laser-based technology used in cell counting, cell sorting, biomarker detection or protein engineering.
By suspending cells and passing these suspending cells by passing them using an electronic detection machine, flow cytometry is done.
This technique allows making simultaneous analysis of the different characteristics of the more than a thousand particles per second.
This technique is usually used in the diagnosis of health disorders, in most of the cases blood cancers, but it is used in many medical trials, such as to sort particles according to their properties or purify populations of interest.
