Cytometer. Definition

Medical Definition: Cytometer

A device that puts the cell suspension in a passage so narrow that they can only go one at a time. Subsequently, a mechanism for reading (laser), not only counts, but that records if they meet a certain condition or not. This allows not only count cells, but also analyze the proportions between the different cell types. One advantage of the cytometer is that it allows analysis of two parameters at once.
