How it Works
Flow cytometry is an analytical technique recognized by the International Dairy Federation (IDF) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA/NCIMS). It is used to produce a laminar flow of the somatic cells through the measuring cell. This flow ensures that every somatic cell is counted. SomaScope Smart is the first somatic cell counter that uses a Light Emitting Diode (LED) to illuminate the stained cells in a sample and detect them with dual photomultiplier tubes.
