AFMS BD Biosciences Unit is highly specialized in the field of Flowcytometry and Sorting Technology. Our BD Biosciences Unit is covering the entire KSA market and boasts having the largest market share in research and medical diagnostics.
Flowcytometry and cell sorting are well-established technologies in clinical diagnostics and biomedical research. Flowcytometry is a technique used to detect and measure physical and chemical characteristics of a population of cells or particles. A sample containing cells or particles is suspended in a fluid and injected into the flow cytometer instrument. The sample is focused to ideally flow one cell at a time through a laser beam and the light scattered is characteristic to the cells and their components. Cells are often labeled with fluorescent markers so that light is first absorbed and then emitted in a band of wavelengths. Tens of thousands of cells can be quickly studied, and the data gathered are processed by a computer.
Flow cytometry is routinely used in basic research, clinical practice, and clinical trials. Uses for flow cytometry include Cell counting, Cell sorting, determining cell characteristics and function, detecting microorganisms, biomarker detection, protein engineering detection, and diagnosis of health disorders such as blood cancers.
A flow cytometry analyzer is an instrument that provides quantifiable data from a sample. Other instruments using flow cytometry include cell sorters which physically separate and thereby purify cells of interest based on their optical properties.
The Unit is equipped with highly qualified and experienced professionals to provide best-in-class sales and after-sales service to customers across KSA
