  Why use Flow Cytometry when there is a better and faster method?

Why use flow cytometry when there is now a far simpler method for cell counting and sorting?

Faster than FlowCytometryIn traditional flow cytometry there are three main components which make up a system. These components are the fluidics, the optics and the electronic parts. Then of course there is the data which has to be processed and presented in the right format for the application. So why would you go this route when there is now a far simpler method for cell counting and sorting?...
