Beckman Coulter Life Sciences Competition Offers CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer as $200,000* Main Prize
High Performance, Compact Flow Cytometry Instrument Delivers Full Analysis Capabilities
Beckman Coulter Life Sciences is running a major competition for flow cytometry scientists, with the prize the recently launched CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer, valued at approximately 200,000 US dollars.
Applicants are being asked to challenge the CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer to solve a key experimental puzzle for their research and to describe how it would deliver the solution, in 300 words or less. For more information visit: CytoFLEX Competition.
“The CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer is a small instrument getting a lot of attention,” explained Sharlene Wright, Marketing Director Flow Cytometry Instruments & Software, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. “This disruptive technology brings flow cytometry within reach of scientists new to the technology, while delivering the performance demanded by experienced flow cytometrists.”
The CytoFLEX Flow Cytometer provides easily upgradeable detection capabilities for up to 3 lasers and 13 color research flow cytometry. Any specific configuration can be upgraded in less than a day. Fitting in a 16-inch square bench space and weighing just 50 pounds, the instrument offers up to 21 configurations, from basic setup to a multi-color, multi-laser sophisticated analyzer.
