Akadeum’s groundbreaking microbubble technology—which allows for fast, easy removal of target cells from biological samples—was recognized as the best new technology at CYTO Innovation 2017.
Each year, the top minds in cytometry—which refers to the methodology used to extract quantitative information from individual cells—join together at ISAC’s CYTO Innovation to present the industry’s new technologies in the technology showcase. This year, we rose to the top as the clear winner.
The judging panel—comprised of technology experts as well as industry representatives from leading venture capital, product, and business development firms—awarded Akadeum the CYTO Innovation award for 2017. Our technology was chosen for its distinguishing aspects from existing technologies and its potential impact on science and/or medicine.
As the first company to commercialize microbubbles for cell separation, it is an honor to receive this recognition from such a prestigious panel of judges.
