Fluorescence activated analysis and sorting (“flow cytometry”) offers a successful method to characterise particles in a fast, statistically quantitative way (Melamed et al., 1990). Originally developed to analyse and sort cells (Bonner et al., 1972) it is nowadays a highly versatile tool for biomedical research and routine clinical diagnostics (Darzynkiewicz et Crissman, 1990). Flow cytometry was introduced into cytogenetics about 20 years ago (Gray et al., 1975; Stubblefield et al., 1975). “Flow cytogenetics” (Gray and Langlois, 1986; Cremer et al., 1989a) contributed significantly to medicine and molecular biology.
