Photodetectors in Flow Cytometers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Flow cytometers, ubiquitous in biomedical, clinical, engineering, and environmental laboratories, may soon benefit from advancements in silicon photomultipliers.

SLAWOMIR PIATEK AND EARL HERGERT, HAMAMATSU CORP.

Flow cytometry is a technique that can provide quantitative and qualitative information about biological cells and microparticles. The information is in the light that has interacted with the cells as they pass one after another and one at a time through a narrow region illuminated by one or more lasers. The machine that enables such studies is a flow cytometer, ubiquitous in biomedical, clinical, engineering, and environmental laboratories. Its design consists of fluidics, illumination optics, photodetection, data analysis, and, in some models, cell sorting (Figure 1). Figure 1. The...Read full article
