Flow cytometric protocol for enumerating viruses

This protocol allows to set up a flow cytometer protocol for counting viruses in liquid solutions. The protocol has been developed for a Becton Dickinson FACSCalibur and might thus be modified for other flow cytometers. Note that the settings of the flow cytometer might be slightly different between flow cytometers of the same brand.

This method allows for a rapid and precise quantification of viruses. Thus, a large scale assessment of the effect of viruses on bacterial production and diversity and their role in the carbon cycle is possible. A protocol can be obtain upon contact (Markus Weinbauer:
