It is very important to have information about chemical and biological hazards in your sample before the analysis by flow cytometry or cell sorting.

The process of flow cytometry and cell sorting involves the formation of aerosols. Since this may imply a possible personal or environmental contamination due to potentially dangerous biological agents contained in the sample, it is essential to unequivocally determine the content of the sample before beginning the analysis or sorting. This will help us to assess whether it is feasible to perform cytometry or sorting and whether it is necessary to take special protective measures.
