Being an instrument used in many scientific and practical applications, the CytoBuoy instruments have contributed to numerous publications over the years. Here you can find a selection of publications and presentations based on, working with or making use of (data of)the CytoSense, CytoSub, CytoBuoy or their predecessors the (Eur)OPA flow cytometers for phytoplankton.
