Another very common laser after the “blue” and “red” laser in flow cytometers. A “violet” laser in flow cytometry typically is referred to as the 405 because most flow cytometers use a violet laser with a wavelength of 405nm. Pacific Blue and Pacific Orange are the most common fluorophores used with this laser, but Brilliant Violet fluors are gaining popularity.
My other passions include grilling, wine tasting, and real food. To be honest, my biggest passion is flow cytometry, which is something that Carol and I share. My personal mission is to make flow cytometry education accessible, relevant, and fun. I’ve had a long history in the field starting all the way back in graduate school.
