Cell separation techniques exploit a wide spectrum of biological and physical properties, alone and in combination. In at least two cases offering high resolution, flow sorting and fractionation with magnetic microspheres, the forces used for separation are unrelated to the measured properties of the cells. Sterility and viability can be maintained. Examples which are discussed include gene mapping with metaphase chromosomes and the sorting of spontaneous mutant human red cells containing sickle-hemoglobin. © 1980 Elsevier/North-Holland Press.
