Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and CompuCyte Establish Quantitative Imaging Cytometry Center
News Jul 03, 2007
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.

3-D Tissue Model of Developing Heart Could Aid Drug Safety Testing for Pregnant WomenNews
Parents and doctors often have to consider the mother's health as well as the potential risk regarding how medication could affect their baby. Researchers have developed a process to make a 3D tissue model that could mimic early stage human heart development, which could aid drug safety testing and help determine a drug's effects on fetal development.READ MORE
