WALTHAM, Mass., June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroMedicine, Inc., a life sciences technology company, today announced that it will be hosting its first Commercial Tutorial at the 34th annual 2019 CYTO Congress of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The conference will be held June 22-26, 2019 and is highly attended by leading world cytometry experts.
Title: High Yield, High Purity Cell Separation and Concentration with an Automated Microfluidic-based System
Presenter: Sarah Mickool, Research Engineer
Time: Tuesday, June 25, 12:30-1:30
Location: Room 12, Vancouver Convention Centre
The tutorial will introduce the Sorterra™ Cell Isolation System, which leverages MicroMedicine's patented microfluidic technology and is slated for launch in the US later this year. The system is an automated, microfluidic-based cell isolation technology designed for the separation of white blood cells from large volumes of whole blood. Ms. Mickool will cover how the concept of "inertial focusing" in microfluidic channels is leveraged to enable efficient and gentle cell separation based on cell size.
The company will also be presenting a poster, "An Inertial Focusing-Based Microfluidic System for Automated High Volume, High Throughput Cell Separation and Concentration". In this poster, MicroMedicine will discuss how their proprietary technology vastly improves on a labor-intensive, 50-year old process with automation, speed, and efficacy.
