Imagestream Services

The ImageStream platform combines the efficiency and quantitative nature of flow cytometry with the visual power of microscopy. Dr. Hans Minderman, in a consortium agreement with the Amnis Corp., was awarded an R21/R33 grant by the NIH in April 2007 to evaluate the clinical application of this relatively new technology. Through the close collaboration with the Amnis Corp., the facility was invited to be a beta-test site for the ImageStream technology and has since beta-tested two new generations of this platform (the ImageStream-X and the ImageStream-MKII). The continuing collaboration with Amnis Corp (now part of Merck-Millipore) assures that the facility is on the forefront of any new hardware and software developments in this area.
