Over the past years, ever since it was named 'Method of the Year 2010' by the research journal Nature Methods, optogenetics has outgrown its infancy. In the early days used mainly as a neuromodulation method, the application of optogenetic tools at present extends to many different branches of biology. For the most part and despite its many opportunities, current optogenetic in vitro research relies mostly on microscopy, patch clamp-techniques and plate readers, or using self-made and hence often inaccurate illumination devices. In addition, a major drawback of the above-mentioned methods is their inability to perform high throughput experiments at single cell resolution. A powerful tool to overcome these limitations and to revolutionize future optogenetic applications is the combination of flow cytometry with customized LED illumination – OFC.
