Many people are aware of the Coulter Counter, the first medical device to take measurements with impedance. But it was a simple blood cell counter. How has impedance technology changed since then?

History and Applications of Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry was born out of impedance technology; in 1953, a patent was issued to American Wallace H. Coulter for a cell counter based on the 'Coulter Principle'. This device was the forerunner to modern impedance cell analysers, flow cytometry and cell-sorting devices.

Today, flow cytometry is one of the most ubiquitous tools in bioscience. It has appli...
