Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry is the analysis of biological material by detection of the light-absorbing or fluorescing properties of cells or subcellular fractions such as chromosomes passing in a narrow stream through a laser beam. Flow cytometry can be used with automated sorting devices to sort successive droplets of the stream into different fractions depending on the fluorescence emitted by each droplet. The Integrated Oncology flow cytometry department is one of the nation's premier diagnostic hematopathology laboratories.

With an extensive menu of antibodies and state-of-the-art dual laser instrumentation, our experienced technologists and dedicated pathologists are experts in the application of flow cytometry for the interpretation of hematopoietic disorders.
