To welcome our new customers, we offer a 3-days training at our headquarters free of charge. It is a great way to learn how to acquire a high-quality data on your sample using the CytoSense/Sub/Buoy.

Upon the first such training this year, Prof. Bas Ibelings and his group are now back in their lab at University of Geneva in Switzerland and are setting up an exciting research project on the platform LéXPLORE. In this ambitious undertaking, the researchers from EPFL, University of Geneva and Eawag will monitor how global warming influences composition dynamics of plankton diversity in Lake Geneva. One of the interesting aspects will be observation of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix rubescens. The researchers “want to establish the most advanced lake experimental monitoring station worldwide to study the effects of those changes and provide responsible authorities with timely information.”

We are honored that CytoBuoy flow cytometer is part of this project!
