Flow Cytometry Lasers

Flow Cytometry Lasers

Flow cytometry is a laser-based technology employed in cell counting, cell sorting, biomarker detection, and protein engineering.  This technology is used to analyze the physical and chemical characteristics of particles in a fluid as it passes through at least one laser.  The fluorescence-labeled cell components are excited by the flow cytometry lasers to emit light at varying wavelengths.  The fluorescence can then be measured to determine the amount and type of cells present in a sample.  Up to thousands of particles per second can be analyzed as they pass through the liquid stream. Most of the visible wavelengths can be used in flow cytometry, but it’s essential that all flow cytometry lasers have a high quality TEM00 beam profile.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the full range of flow cytometry lasers we offer at RPMC, including our multi-laser combiner.
