What is Large Particle Flow Cytometry?

Union Biometrica provides flow cytometry for objects that are too large / too fragile for traditional cytometers and offer an alternative to manual sorting (under a microscope). These systems sort and dispense objects based on size and fluorescent parameters. Automating this process offers increased speed, sensitivity, quantification, and repeatability of experiments.
