CSHL, CompuCyte Establish Quantitative Imaging Center

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has partnered with CompuCyte to establish a regional Quantitative Imaging Cytometry Center of Excellence at CSHL, the lab said last week.
The jointly run center will use CompuCyte’s laser-scanning technology to offer educational and training resources in quantitative imaging cytometry.
As part of the alliance, CSHL and CompuCyte will sponsor an annual symposium and training programs that will focus on QIC techniques that use laser-scanning systems.
