About ISAC
About ISAC
-Our Mission-
ISAC's mission is to serve a multidisciplinary community by leading technological innovation, scholarship, and the exchange of knowledge in the quantitative cell sciences.


Who We Are
What is Cytometry?
Cytometry is the quantitative analysis of cells and cell systems. A wide range of cutting edge techniques are used to perform cytometry which plays a crucial role in advancing the frontiers of biology, medicine, and technology.

Our History
The decision to form a "Society for Analytical Cytology" was first proposed at the fifth Engineering Foundation Conference on Automated Cytology, held on December 12, 1976 in Pensacola, Florida.

Committees & Task Forces
Over two dozen committees and task forces work tirelessly to carry out the many scientific, educational, and outreach programs offered by ISAC. Made up entirely of volunteers, they are the central nervous system of the Society.

Associated Societies
ISAC believes in the importance of exchanging ideas, which is why we maintain strong relationships with other international cytometry organizations. With close to 40 Associated Societies, we continue to expand our community and broaden the scope of our vision and goals.

A Closer Look At Our Logo

The ISAC logo represents the great variety of interests among the members of our Society.  The cell is undoubtedly at the core of what we do, or rather what we measure (cyto + metry = cell + measurement).  Inside our cell image is an antibody that goes straight to the nucleus, the “heart" of the cell. But, as we know very well, there is far more to cytometry than what we find within a cell itself.  To the left of our cell image is a DNA helix, while on the right is a sequence of binary code that spells out "ISAC" going clockwise.  The stylization of a red laser underlines our acronym and stands over the word “Society" below.   Far from attempting to cover all the possible topics we study (which is now a nearly impossible task), we nonetheless hope that our logo represents us well, and will accompany all our members to new, prestigious goals going forward!
