October 2020 Newsletter

Welcoming new staff, another patent, and more!

We missed seeing all our friends and colleagues in person at CYTO this year! While virtual CYTO 2020 was a great conference, we hope to see you all in person again sometime in 2021.

Since we could not share our product updates in person, we have been sharing them on LinkedIn each week. Make sure you are following us on LinkedIn to receive weekly updates and news!

Whether you are still working from home or you are back to your lab or office, I hope you staying healthy and managing during the new normal we are facing.

Take a look at our newsletter to see what Kinetic River has been up to lately.

Kinetic River Mourns the Loss of Two Flow Cytometry Pioneers

Kinetic River is saddened to hear of the recent passing of Robert Leif and Frank Traganos. Bob and Frank were both pioneers in the Flow Cytometry field from its earliest days. Their contributions to the flow cytometry community will be sorely missed.

The Potomac Arrives in Italy

During the first week of July, despite being slowed down by COVID-19 restrictions, Kinetic River delivered a fully customized Potomac flow cytometer for a customer in Italy. Giovanni Contini of CytoFlowService, our European distribution partner, was on-site to perform testing to ensure optical alignment was maintained during shipping. We are grateful to have our European partner to help extend our reach into Europe.

CYTO 2020 and 2021 Virtual

While we missed seeing all our friends and colleagues at CYTO 2020 in Philadelphia, we realize that ISAC made the wise decision, putting the safety of the flow cytometry community above all else.  If you missed out, ISAC is extending the availability of the live sessions from CYTO Virtual 2020. We at Kinetic River know we will be re-watching some of our favorite sessions.

It was just recently announced that CYTO 2021, which was scheduled to be held in Brussels in June, 2021, will not be held in person either. Kinetic River is disappointed since we have so much new to share with you, but of course we understand ISAC’s caution given these unusual circumstances.

We look forward to the time when sharing the latest developments with you in person will be safe and practical.

Personalized Remote Information Sessions

In the absence of CYTO 2020, and now CYTO 2021, Kinetic River is using alternative methods to share our results with you.

We would be happy to put together a personalized, remote, private information session for you and your colleagues. We can share our latest developments and discuss your applications and how Kinetic River’s instruments can meet your needs. If interested, please contact us at .

Keep up to date with all of Kinetic River’s events.
