Researchers Win Flow Cytometers
Accuri Cytometers Inc., a life sciences company developing bench-top flow cytometer systems, recently announced the 2009 recipients of its Accuri Flow Cytometer Creativity Awards program, which provides a free Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System each year to two sets of researchers, one in the U.S. and one in Europe, who propose innovative uses of flow cytometry.
The 2009 Accuri Flow Cytometer Creativity Award winners include research teams at the University of Southern Mississippi, Stennis Space Center, and University College Dublin, Ireland. Accuri's Creativity Awards program was created to foster innovative research that taps the unrealized potential of flow cytometry and expands its use to novel applications.
"A key driver behind the development of the Accuri C6 system was our belief that the full scientific potential of flow cytometry has been hampered by its lack of wide accessibility," said Jack Ball, chief commercial officer at Accuri. "The diverse and imaginative responses submitted to our awards program provide concrete evidence that flow cytometry is applicable to a wide range of biological research topics, and they demonstrate in tangible ways how the Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System can help unleash the full potential of flow cytometry for research that was not previously accessible."
