ANN ARBOR, Mich. and SAN DIEGO, May 10 Accuri Cytometers, Inc., the fastest growing life sciences company marketing and producing revolutionary bench-top flow cytometer systems, and eBioscience, the number two supplier of research flow cytometry reagents, today announced that they have entered into a worldwide co-marketing agreement. The collaboration is designed to offer scientists a better and more comprehensive solution for their flow cytometry research needs, harnessing the cost-effectiveness, ease-of-use, performance capabilities and accessibility of the Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer® System with the market leading extensive line of high quality cytometer research reagents offered by eBioscience.
Explicitly designed for routine use by biomedical researchers in their own labs, Accuri's full-featured bench-top cell analysis system provides powerful capabilities similar to industry-leading flow cytometers in a user-friendly format and at a fraction of the cost. eBioscience, which is among the largest suppliers of flow cytometry research reagents worldwide, offers a wide range of high quality innovative flow cytometry research reagents optimized for a variety of applications.
"We are pleased to partner with reagent leader eBioscience to offer our growing customer base a wide range of quality reagents optimized for their varied research needs," said Jack Ball, Chief Commercial Officer of Accuri. "The adoption of the Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer System by over 500 research labs for an increasing range of applications has brought the need for high quality reagents that work seamlessly with our systems to the fore. This marketing partnership allows Accuri to further deliver on our promise to our customers to offer an affordable, easy-to-use flow cytometer solution--now made even more accessible with the easy availability of a full range of quality research reagents."
Accuri designed the C6 system from the ground up with input from hundreds of researchers. Accuri's innovations, coupled with its state-of-the-art components, resulted in a cytometer that is powerful, robust, compact, easy-to-use and very affordable, at less than one-third the price of current market-leading flow cytometers and one-tenth the operating costs of the market leaders over five years of ownership.
