Written for the lay reader, this article recounts the events leading to a new way of assessing microbial populations in the ocean. Flow cytometry, once a medical tool, is now used in counting and identifying phytoplankton. Recent research is paving the way for use of this tool in identifying oceanic bacteria as well, allowing a fuller understanding of these otherwise difficult-to-study organisms.
