CompuCyte Corporation and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have announced the establishment of the first U.S.-based Regional Quantitative Imaging Cytometry Center of Excellence.

Located at CSHL and jointly run by the two organizations, the Center will provide educational and training resources for quantitative imaging cytometry (QIC) based on CompuCyte’s laser scanning technology (LSC).

“Quantitative Imaging Cytometry is an emerging area with extraordinary potential for cancer research,” stated Nicholas Tonks, Ph.D., FRS, Director of Shared Resources for the CSHL Cancer Center.

“As an NCI-designated Cancer Center, CSHL strives to provide its researchers with the latest technologies to facilitate their work. CSHL’s partnership with CompuCyte gives our scientists full advantage of the power of this technology and will allow them to develop new applications for its use,” said Tonks.

Under the agreement, which extends and expands an existing relationship between the two organizations, CSHL and CompuCyte will sponsor an annual symposium and several training programs throughout the year, focusing on new QIC techniques for researchers using LSC systems in cell and tissue-based research. The Center will be guided by an advisory committee of renowned cytometry experts.
