Each chapter presents a detailed background of the described method, its theoretical foundations, and its applicability to different biomedical material. Updated chapters describe either the most popular methods or those processes that have evolved the most since the past edition. Additionally, a large portion of the volume is devoted to clinical cytometry. Particular attention is paid to applications of cytometry in oncology, the most rapidly growing area.

Praise for the Second Edition "The second edition of Flow Cytometry provides a comprehensive and detailed foundation in the application of this diverse and rapidly expanding technology. The variety and scope of topics covered in this two-volume set are too large to cover in detail. The second edition of Flow Cytometry provides the investigator with a concise compilation of new and updated applications and procedures, updated references and a directory of the principal contributors to the field. The additions and improvements to the second edition are evidence of the impact this technology will continue to have on biological and medical sciences for years to come. --AMERICAN SCIENTIST
