The advancement of cytometry depends on the translation of innovative research into useful, accessible tools that can catalyze new biological understanding. CYTO Innovation is the forum within ISAC that explores the challenges and opportunities for the translation of new cell analysis technologies into commercially viable products and services.
CYTO 2019 Innovation Technology Showcase
A highlight of CYTO 2019 is the CYTO Innovation Technology Showcase. These 5-minute presentations allow scientists and engineers who seek to commercialize new technologies and services for cell analysis to present their plans to an audience of cytometrists, entrepreneurs, investors, and business development professionals from established corporations. Several presenters from past CYTO Innovation sessions entered business arrangements with large companies following their presentation.
A Technology Showcase presentation should:
Define the proposed product or service.
Highlight the novelty of the idea/invention/service.
Identify the application area and the impact the technology will have on the practice of cytometry.
Describe the level of implementation/position in the product development plan.
Provide a short, concise description of the plan on how to take the idea to market.
