How dyes evolved – The history of the modern flow cytometry dye

Dyes are an important part of flow cytometry. The sophisticated, multi-colour flow cytometry experiments being done today are not possible without state-of-the-art, high-performance dyes. The evolution from the early fluorescence dyes to the highly sophisticated polymer dyes of today that have enabled advanced immunophenotyping experiments, is a very exciting story. Advances in instrumentation and laser technology are also important aspects that have brought about these developments. Read about this story and learn how chemistry, engineering and science have been working together over the years to make modern flow cytometry possible.
