Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting : Problems and Promises for Biological Ocean Science Research
With the sole exception of the measurement of phytoplankton fluorescence, biological oceanographers live within the constraint of having few methods which provide real time continuous data. Most methods are discrete measurements of the “whole” community.
