Hard to believe it’s already May. The activity at Kinetic River has been intense this winter and spring, with new product launches, articles in technical journals and trade magazines, and a variety of speaking engagements—not to mention expansion into new office and laboratory quarters.


We’ll brief you on all this in more detail in a few weeks. For now the focus is CYTO 2014 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where we are exhibiting and participating in the technical conference. I'm in town May 17-22 and am looking forward to reconnecting with friends and colleagues—feel free to drop me an email to set up a time for coffee or just stop by our booth (#722) anytime.



 

Here are a few exciting CYTO highlights you don’t want to miss:
 
Launching the Danube II
This year at CYTO Kinetic River is introducing a new flow-based technology that enables the FLIM-like analysis of entire populations of thousands of cells in the same time it normally takes to analyze a handful. The Danube II moves beyond the approach that made the Danube I possible, and significantly improves lifetime sensitivity and resolution.

As with any new technology there are some trade-offs: with the 1000-fold increase in throughput, one loses subcellular localization information, and the current lifetime limit of detection is ~ 0.5 ns. 

Would the ability to perform cell-population-wide fluorescence lifetime studies (e.g., FRET; bead-based assays; free vs. bound NADH) in seconds be of interested to someone you know?
