A laser type in a flow cytometer with a wavelength of about 560nm. The green and yellow laser are more effective at exciting PE and its tandems than the traditional blue laser. The yellow laser is also often used to excite the “fruit” dyes like mCherry.

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.
