From the Reviews of the First Edition:

"This is a good reference manual for multi-user facility faced with a wide variety of biological applications."

"Flow Cytometry includes an impressive array of methods applicable to chromosome analysis, plant biology, marine biology, fluorescence, insitu hybridization, and others. It succeeds in providing the reader with good insight into the power of the technology throughout biology."

Flow Cytometry, Second Edition provides a complete and comprehensive two-volume laboratory guide and reference for the use of the most current methods in flow cytometry sample preparation and analysis. These essential techniques are described in a step-by-step format, supplemented by explanatory sections and trouble-shooting tips. The methods are accessible to all researchers and students in biomedical science and biology who use flow Cytometry to separate and analyze cells.

@from:Praise for the Second Edition
@qu:"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."
@qu:"The Second Edition of this valuable book, nearly twice the size of the first, testifies to the continuing extraordinary growth of new biologic applications for flow cytometry. This "Methods" book fills the need for a compendium of those techniques, presented in concise, straightforward language. It is a highly readable compendium of biologic techniques for flow cytometry that should be in every laboratory..."
