Millipore Corporation and Guava Technologies to Award Instrumentation to Advance Cell Biology Research

BILLERICA, MA and HAYWARD, CA | Posted on December 22nd, 2008

The award was announced during the American Society of Cell Biology meeting in San Francisco, California by Geoffrey Crouse, Vice President, Millipore Life Science and Lawrence Bruder, CEO, Guava Technologies.

"This award will enable research into such critical areas of cell biology as stem cell differentiation, cell signaling, mechanism of action of a particular therapeutic agent, and insight into the molecular basis of a specific pathology," said Crouse.

Applications can be accessed from both the Millipore and Guava Technologies web sites from January 1 until April 30, 2009 (www.millipore.com and www.guavatechnologies.com). The applications will be reviewed by a joint panel of scientists from both companies. After reviewing the applications, the scientific panel will select five finalists. Each of the finalists will be contacted for an in-depth discussion of their proposal. The instrument will be awarded in May, 2009 to one of the finalists. The award is open to all research labs worldwide.

"This is a partnership—not just between Millipore and Guava Technologies, but between our two companies and the research community," said Bruder. "Millipore's expertise in fluorescent antibody kit development and assay validation combined with Guava Technology's expertise in flow cytometry instrumentation and software is enabling more researchers than ever before to access this powerful technology."

Earlier this year, Millipore and Guava Technologies entered into a long-term partnership to deliver optimized benchtop flow cytometry products and services to the academic, government, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical markets.

Since the partnership was announced, the companies have successfully launched 17 kits for stem cell characterization and chemokine receptor quantification and are jointly developing a next generation flow cytometry instrument.
