Cyntellect Opens UK Office to Expand European Market

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – US-based cytometry firm Cyntellect today announced the opening of its European operations in Newport, UK.

Cyntellect said that a team of sales, scientific, and service support staff throughout the UK, France, Germany, and the Netherlands will cover all of the European Union.

"With the formation of Cyntellect Europe, we will accelerate the commercialization of our products for applications in cell line development for biopharmaceuticals, drug discovery, and cancer research, including key applications utilizing stem cells," Cyntellect President and CEO Fred Koller said in a statement.

The San Diego-based company also said that it will formally launch two products to the European market at next week's MipTech Conference and Tradeshow in Basel, Switzerland: a cytometer for non-invasive in situ live-cell imaging; and a module to manage stem cell research processes in its flagship cell-processing workstation.
