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...

The combination of microscopy and flow cytometry enables image based screening of large collections of cells. Despite the proposition more than thirty years ago, adding high resolution wide-field imaging to flow cytometers remains challenging. The velocity of cells in flow...

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...
