Micromanipulation is a method where individual cells are extracted manually from the sample. The pros, in this case, are that it guarantees that each cell captured is captured successfully, while the cons are that it is extremely slow and low throughput. Microdissection, on the other hand, is used for extracting single cells from tissues. Microdissection utilizes a laser to take individual cells from said tissue and attach them to a ‘thin film that can then be removed.’ FACS, or fluorescence-activated cell sorting, is a type of flow cytometry. It sorts a heterogeneous cell population into containers one cell at a time, using the fluorescence to determine where it should be sorted. This is a much quicker way to separate and sort cells, but to use FACS, the tissue sample must be...
