Description Technique of high-resolution cytometry (HRCM) developed in our laboratory is capable of automated (2D as well as 3D) acquisition and analysis of fluorescent stained cells. The cytometer can process large number of cells with high resolution. The acquisition can be repeated in time and that enables live cell studies. If very short events in living cells are studied then the sampling frequency must be high. The highest sampling frequency depends on the technical parameters of the motorized parts of cytometer (especially on the camera frame rate, the speed of filter exchange and the speed of axial movement) and on the control software, which must be appropriately optimized. The limits of the current setup are discussed and available sampling frequencies for different acquisition modes are listed.
