In conclusion, we've shown the basics of flow cytometric analysis and outlined the process and application of this method. There are an ever-increasing number of applications both in research and clinical laboratory science for flow cytometry. DNA analysis, evaluation of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), reticulocyte enumeration, and the investigation and classification of acute myloid leukemias are a few examples of these additional flow cytometry applications. 
In addition to stand-alone flow cytometers, a number of hematology cell counters also include flow cytometric techniques in their analysis. The introductory concepts introduced in this course are both important and necessary for the appropriate comprehension of flow cytometric analysis and clinical applications for this unique methodology.
