CYTO Innovation Presents:

Akadeum Microbubbles and Flow Cytometry - Technology, Tools, and What's to Come


Thursday, June 21 at 12:00pm Eastern (U.S. & Canada)


Presented by:

John Younger
Chief Technology Officer
Akadeum Life Sciences, Inc.


About the Presenter

John formed Akadeum Life Sciences in 2014 with his co-founder, Brandon McNaughton, to bring microbubble-based tools to the life sciences.  Buoyancy is a powerful alternative to magnetic methods for cell separation and offers exciting new ways of working with samples in research, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications.  Prior to joining Akadeum, John enjoyed a 21-year career as a physician scientist at the University of Michigan.  While his clinical practice was in emergency medicine, his laboratory focused on the ways in which living cells interact – for good or ill – with engineered materials.

Webinar Summary 

I’ll present a short technical background about buoyant cell isolation, highlighting how microbubbles differ from magnetic particles.  Next, I’ll share some ways that microbubbles are improving the ways that users are preparing samples for flow cytometry and FACS. To wrap up, I’ll review current products available, give a preview about what cell separation products are coming.  Lastly, for upcoming products we’ll discuss how you and your team can have early access to kits.

Learning Objectives

  • How can microbubbles improve your research and development
  • How can microbubbles replace or be combined with your current magnetic methods?
  • What new Akadeum products are coming in 2018 and 2019?

Who Should Attend

Researchers who want a simple way to isolate cells with no columns and no magnets.
