We developed a fully automated microflow cytometer for astronauts, which can finish the whole blood preparation and the white blood cell counting automatically. To the best knowledge of the authors, it is the first microflow cytometer designed for space application with automated blood sample preparation function. An enumeration of lymphocyte subsets is carried out and the results show great agreement with the reference commercial flow cytometer.
