Laser Flow Cytometry

The LaserCyte Dx Hematology Analyzer uses reference laboratory technology to analyze blood samples. The analyzer focuses a laser beam on each individual cell and quantifies the scatter of light on four separate detectors.

Simultaneously, the analyzer measures the amount of time it takes a cell to travel through the laser beam. This cell travel time is referred to as the “time of flight” and it provides data on the diameter of the cell.

The four detectors quantify the scatter of light from each cell to measure size, complexity, granularity and light absorption—the same qualities a pathologist would examine when looking at a blood film.
