• analytical
  • Data standards include the widely adopted Flow Cytometry Standard (FCS) defining how data from cytometers should be stored, but also several new standards under development by the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) to aid in storing more detailed information about experimental design and analytical steps.

  • cells
  • The technique is a good fit for clinical applications by providing a convenient means for imaging and analyzing cells directly in bodily fluids. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • A touch-screen user interface based on a tablet-PC is developed to reconstruct the holographic shadows captured by the image sensor chip and use a support vector machine (SVM) model to automatically classify live and dead cells in a yeast sample stained with methylene blue. (rsc.org)
  • Cytometry is the measurement of the characteristics of cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cytometry is used to characterize and count blood cells in common blood tests such as the complete blood count. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conventional flow and image cytometers have the disadvantage of not being able to observe cells over time. (wikipedia.org)
  • The rapid decrease in the cost of digitally storing and processing video information has led to the development of image cytometers which monitor cultured cells using time-lapse video recordings. (wikipedia.org)
  • The current protocol takes advantage of magnetic sorting of surface-labeled yeast mother cells to obtain large enough populations of aging mother cells to quantify rare mutations through phenotypic selections. (jove.com)
  • Flow cytometry is generally used for analyzing individual cells in a suspension, and is common in immunology and haematopathology. (isac-net.org)
  • experimental
  • Early flow cytometers were, in general, experimental devices, but technological advances have enabled widespread applications for use in a variety of both clinical and research purposes. (wikipedia.org)
  • technology
  • The FISH application will be further enhanced by the integration of extended depth of field imaging technology with the current optical system. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • At the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, Xuantao Su and colleagues are looking into optofluidic technology to aid in the development of the next generation of portable cytometers for point-of-care and other applications. (photonics.com)
  • More recently, the new technology of mass cytometry replaces fluorophores with rare-earth elements detected by time of flight mass spectrometry, achieving the ability to measure the expression of 34 or more markers. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanical
  • We sought to define the time course of endothelial function recovery using flow-mediated dilation (FMD), after ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) and mechanical injury in patients and healthy volunteers. (hindawi.com)
  • device
  • The first impedance-based flow cytometry device, using the Coulter principle , was disclosed in U.S. Patent 2,656,508, issued in 1953, to Wallace H. Coulter . (wikipedia.org)
