Flow Cytometry's in vivo potential:
- Diagnosis of infectious diseases, such as AIDS, SARS
- Identification of epidemics or bioterrorism events
- Real-time health monitoring
- Cancer research, such as metastasis studies
- Pharmaceutical research, such as drug delivery studies
Further information on this technology will be posted soon.
