This book covers very basic number handling techniques, regression analysis, probability functions, statistical tests and methods of analyzing dynamic processes from flow cytometry data. These are developed for the analysis of not only individual DNA histograms to obtain the proportion of cells in the cell cycle phases, but also time courses of DNA histograms to yield cell cycle kinetic information; overlapping immunofluorescence distributions with confidence limits for the estimated proportions; enzyme kinetic and membrane transport parameters and a brief introduction to multivariate analysis is given. A distinction is made between data handling, for example gating and counting the numbers of cells within that gate, a process commonly regarded as data analysis but which, in reality, is data handling, and data analysis itself which is the means by which information is extracted.

Editorial Reviews

"I recommend this book as an introduction to statistics for the mathematically intimidated and as a gateway into flow cytometry for the mathematically sophisticated.....the book should prove useful." Cancer Bulletin
