Both for medical and biotechnological purposes it is very important to be able to analyze and manipulate cellular populations on a single cell basis. Moreover it is often important to be able to sort a subfraction of cells from the total population with defined specific characteristics. Since the retainment of biological viability is of importance in such cases the use of monoclonal antibodies for cell characterization cannot always be applied. The use of light scattering offers an attractive alternative. One of the manipulations which is at the beginning of many biotechnological processes is the fusion between two well characterized and differing cell types. In the present paper we concentrate on the use of flowcytometry for light scattering characterization and fusion of cells.
