Abstract

The flying light-scattering indicatrix (FLSI, angular dependency of the intensity of light scattered by a moving individual particle) method, based on a scanning flow cytometer (SFC) that permits measurment of individual particle characteristics from light-scattering data, has been used for the determination of size distribution of the following particles: polystyrene latex, milk fat, and spores (Penicillium levitum, Aspergillus pseudoglaucus). The optical system of the SFC and empirical equations provided absolute sizing at the rate of 50 particles/s. Size distributions obtained with the FLSI method and a best-fit procedure using Mie scattering theory have been compared.
