Expanding the Useful Spectrum for Flow Cytometry

Expanding the Useful Spectrum for Flow Cytometry content piece image

Flow cytometry has enabled the discovery of varied and nuanced cell types in terms of phenotypic markers and biological functions, but the visible spectrum places limitations on the number of extrinsic parameters that can be assessed.

Developing the available palette requires exploring options on the periphery of the visible spectrum, however, expanding toward the far red end of the spectrum has been hindered due to limitations of photomultiplier tube detectors.

Download this whitepaper to learn how photodiode detectors:

• Can expand the accessible electromagnetic spectrum for use in flow cytometry

• Exhibit high quantum efficiency in the infrared range of the spectrum

• Provide additional fluorescent channels for viability dyes and bright markers with minimal spectral overlap into traditional channels
