rather silly question, but here goes. i was reading an article on b
cell subpopulations ('conventional b cells', b-1a cells, b-1b cells),
and there was extensive mention on the use of FACS as a means of
distinguising and/or segregating lymphocyte types and subtypes. can
someone email me an answer as to what FACS is? i have a feeling that
it's some sort of fluorescent assay, but that's all i have to go on.

thnx in advance
