Flow Cytometry is a technique used for identifying cell populations as well as measuring cell surface and intracellular molecules. Cells are suspended in a buffer and flow single file through an instrument called a flow cytometer, allowing multiple parameters to be collected and measured at a high speed rate. This creates a significant advantage over other antibody techniques due to a large number of cells being analyzed in such short amount of time. Flow Cytometry is used in research for applications such as immunophenotyping, DNA studies, cell cycle analysis, and fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS).
R&D Systems offers a wide range of flow cytometry antibodies and products to fit your cell selection and detection workflow. We have workflow solutions, whether you are:
Starting with a mixed cell population and wish to enrich for a specific subset of cells
Differentiating and expanding immune cells or stem cells
Assembling a flow cytometry antibody panel to detect and define cell populations
