Short Abstract:                 Flow cytometry is a highly efficient technique used for the biophysical characterisation of many different cell types across a range of disciplines. This laser based biotechnology works on the principle of scattered and excited light signal detection and can assess large numbers of cells in tens of seconds. This talk will provide a basic introduction to flow cytometry with regards both practical and theoretical uses, as well as the challenges, in sperm cell functional analysis.
