cytometry

 [si-tom´ĕ-tre]
the counting of cells, especially blood cells.
flow cytometry a cytometric technique in which cells suspended in a fluid flow one at a time through a focus of exciting light, which is scattered in patterns characteristic to the cells and their components; cells are frequently labeled with fluorescent markers so that light is first absorbed and then emitted at altered frequencies. A sensor detecting the scattered or emitted light measures the size and molecular characteristics of individual cells; tens of thousands of cells can be examined per minute and the data gathered is processed by computer.

(sī-tom'ĕ-trē),
