Flow Cytometry and Microscopy as Means of Studying Single Cells: A Short Introductional Overview
Flow cytometry and microscopy are perhaps the two most commonly used techniques for analyzing single cells. Both techniques are typically robust and provide a high throughput analysis of living and/or fixed cells. The techniques are often combined with fluorescent labeling of cells, using for example antibodies. This chapter is a short introductory review where some of the possible applications using flow cytometry and microscopy are discussed.
