The most common laser type in a flow cytometer. Typically, this laser has a wavelength of 488nm in flow cytometers. In fact, the term “Blue” laser is often interchanged with “488” laser. Frequently used fluorophores excited and detected by this laser are FITC, Alexa Fluor 488, PE, PerCP, and their tandems.
