We are excited to continue the Chromocyte mission of educating and providing resources to the flow cytometry community.

CompareNetworks, Inc., a leading provider of online B2B marketplaces for the scientific and healthcare industries, today announced the asset acquisition of Chromocyte Limited, a website that serves the flow cytometry community and market.

Chromocyte will join Biocompare, the life science industry’s leading resource for helping scientists find products for their research. Biocompare is part of CompareNetwork’s extensive portfolio that serves the scientific marketplace.

“Flow cytometry is a key market that Biocompare serves,” said Joan Boyce, Vice President and General Manager of Biocompare. “Biocompare and Chromocyte have complementary missions - educating the flow cytometry community, and for that reason we are excited to continue the Chromocyte mission of educating and providing resources to the flow cytometry community.”

Chromocyte was first developed by Graham Pockley, PhD, Professor of Immunobiology at Nottingham Trent University, as an online tool and resource to make it easier to design panels for flow experiments.

“My research focuses on using tools like multiparameter flow cytometry to understand the immunoregulatory mechanisms underlying disease states,” said Dr. Pockley. “The goal behind developing Chromocyte was to make experimental design easier, and more accurate and reproducible. I am delighted about this acquisition, as Biocompare is the perfect partner to carry on Chromocyte’s mission to educate, enable and improve flow cytometry practice.”

In addition to the website, Chromocyte also publishes a series of email newsletters as well as a ‘sister’ site that focuses on flow cytometry related job openings (http://www.flowcytometryjobs.com). For more information on Chromocyte, visit http://www.chromocyte.com.
