Kinetic River Cytometer Installed at National Cancer Institute

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Custom flow cytometry instrumentation developer Kinetic River Corp. has delivered its flagship Potomac modular flow cytometer to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Bethesda, Maryland.

The cytometer was installed in the laboratory of William Telford at NCI. Telford leads the Flow Cytometry Core Facility of the Experimental Transplantation and Immunology Branch (ETIB) of NCI, which supports cell analysis and sorting needs of researchers across the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He also runs an internal R&D program aimed at developing new assay and detection technologies.

"The Potomac will allow us to perform experiments with exotic light sources that are impossible to do on standard systems," Telford said. "Kinetic River's design has the kind of flexibility we need to expand our research capabilities and provide new solutions to our users."

The NCI’s cytometer system incorporates two lasers and seven detectors. The analyzer will be used to test novel laser sources, detectors, electronics and other technologies for flow cytometry. The Potomac fits the needs of customers unsatisfied with cookie-cutter flow cytometry solutions and can accommodate unique requirements.

"Our experience and tools for system design enabled us to efficiently customize every single aspect of the Potomac based on NCI's needs — fluidics, optical excitation, emission collection, detection — and still deliver the final product ahead of schedule," said Giacomo Vacca, president of Kinetic River. "We are thrilled to be supporting Dr. Telford's research efforts in pushing the envelope of cellular analysis."

Kinetic River is a biophotonics design and product development company specializing in life science research and biomedical applications.
