"ImageStream is a very Powerful tool for studying insect cells. This technique gave us the unique possibility for very fast and precise evaluation of the viability of honeybee (Apis mellifera) spermatozoa. In the near future the Imaging Cytometry will be a "gold standard" technique in the field of insects reproduction research".
