28 Mar 2013
Since its invention in the late 1970s, flow cytometry has revolutionized research in many areas of the life sciences, including immunology, cell biology, hematology, and oncology. The applicability of this technique to practically every discipline of biologic research has made the flow cytometer nearly indispensable in the modern research laboratory. This white paper discusses the advantages of integrating flow cytometry into undergraduate education, as reported by researchers and teachers who are doing so.
