Flow Cytometry and Immunofluorescence in Aquatic Sciences
In aquatic sciences, traditional methods which measure biological parameters of particulates such as biomass, carbon fixation, nitrogen assimilation, etc., have relied on bulk analyses resulting in mean values for heterogeneous populations. Information on the distribution of individual cells or particles about the mean are lacking. Certainly, understanding how individuals or subsets of cells function is essential to the interpretation of the apparent behavior of the population as a whole.
