Though the application of particles and cell counting technology is diverse, there is a common need for particulate standards. We manufacture count standards for both dedicated particle counters and flow cytometers. Enumeration of cells in a sample may be achieved through use of a microsphere count standard. Cell count may be calculated by determining the ratio of fluorescent count beads to unlabeled cells. For information on proper mixing and sampling, see TSD 0706: Handling & Pipetting Concentration Standards.
