Cytofluorometry has become a valuable method for the quantitative determination of substances such as nucleic acids, amino acids, proteins, and biological amines in cells or cell organelles. Its main advantages are high sensitivity and simplicity, which make the technique especially suitable for fast analyses of large populations of objects.
