We have previously reported a flow rate calibration method for the determination of absolute CD4(+) T-lymphocyte counts that removes the need for the addition of latex beads to each sample. However, a limitation with this approach is that a calibration

This paper presents a method for microplastic (MP) mass quantification using a Focal Plane Array-based Fourier Transform Infrared imaging technique. It discusses the issue that particle number is not a conserved base quantity and hence less suited than mass to

An essential parameter that describes the quality of liposome suspensions is the mean size, respectively the size distribution. Currently several analytical methods including laser light scattering techniques (LLST) are being employed. Here we present an alternative technique using flow cytometry
