Flow cytometry is a widely used laboratory technique and supports important applications in research and the clinic. This technique has seen important advances in the last decade and its use continues to grow as analytical requirements increase and new applications are developed.

Flow Cytometry 2015 presents the findings of a new global study of flow cytometry that profiled the laboratory use of this technique across research, life science and clinical sectors. This study, which evaluated end-users' current practices and three-year plans, investigated their own estimates of the growth in their use of this technique, the competitive positions of global instrument suppliers; flow cytometry instruments used; research and clinical applications, consumables suppliers; flow cytometry software; end-user's views on their future innovation and development needs in this field; sample preparation steps and methods; numbers of colours used; sample types analysed; main activities; disease areas; disease biomarkers; costs of sample analysis ; sample throughput per month and other areas. This study involved the participation of 271 flow cytometry end-users, whose average level of experience in the use of this technique, was approximately 14 years.
