Putative Limbal Stem Cells in Populations of Normal Human Corneal Epithelial Cells

Rare Stem Cells Identified - It is widely accepted that the stem cells which maintain and renew the corneal epithelium reside in the limbus, located on the periphery of the cornea. They are commonly referred to as limbal stem cells (LSCs) and are useful for basic research into various aspects of corneal biology such as ocular injuries that impair vision.Read More

Blog: Detecting Marine Photosynthetic Picoplankton with Flow Cytometry

Environmental Microbiology

Flow Cytometry - is a powerful tool for studying the biology, ecology, and biogeochemistry of marine photosynthetic picoplankton. These organisms are intrinsically fluorescent due to their photopigment content, and differences in photopigment composition can be used to distinguish the various groups.Read More
