Millipore, Guava to Award a Flow Cytometer to Cell Biology Researcher

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Millipore and Guava Technologies plan to award one of Guava’s flow cytometers to a scientist who is involved in cell biology research, the companies said today. 
 
The companies will assess applications from researchers around the world who submit proposals between Jan. 1, 2009, and April 30, 2009.
 
"This award will enable research into such critical areas of cell biology as stem cell differentiation, cell signaling, mechanism of action of a particular therapeutic agent, and insight into the molecular basis of a specific pathology," said Millipore Life Science VP Geoffrey Crouse in a statement.
 
The companies will decide which researcher will win the flow cytometer, which is valued at over $100,000, after applications are reviewed by a panel of representatives for both companies.
 
Millipore and Guava struck a partnership in March of this year to integrate their flow cytometry instruments, reagents, and support capabilities.
 
Since that agreement was formed the companies have been jointly developing a new flow cytometry instrument, and they have launched 17 kits for stem cell characterization and chemokine receptor quantification.
