Kinetic River Looks Back on its Accomplishments in 2021
2021 was quite a year for Kinetic River, and we are eager to make 2022 another memorable one. From being issued four new patents to delivering multiple presentations, our team has stayed productive and laser-focused on the horizon.
A handful of events from last year that we are particularly proud of:
- Installing 2 Tuolumnes (custom-built quad PMT amplifier modules) at the NCI. Read the article →
- Completing an NIH Phase I SBIR project that further developed our Colorado cytometer (automated autofluorescence removal). Read the article →
- Introducing the Cavour, our remote flowcell-monitoring module. Read the article →
- Creating and shipping a custom flame diagnostics instrument. Read the article →
- Adding a new advisor, Sean Murphy, to our board. Read the article →
- Expanding our lab space to fit our growing team. Read the article →
