Measurement of bacteria and other microorganisms at the level of single cells has progressed enormously over the last couple of decades. Up to the late 1970s, there were no other means than microscopy for observation of single microorganisms, making any type of measurement very cumbersome and tedious, at best. Today, we measure several parameters simultaneously with a precision of a few per cent, and at a rate of 1000 cells per second. The first papers on the use of flow cytometry to measure… CONTINUE READING
