The advancement of cytometry depends on the translation of innovative research into useful, accessible tools that can catalyze new biological understanding. CYTO Innovation is the forum within ISAC that explores the challenges and opportunities for translation of new cell analysis technologies into commercially viable products and services. CYTO Innovation provides:
- an opportunity to learn about the translation of ideas and discoveries into products and knowledge
- the skills required for progressing from a research finding to useful products with impact
- a unique platform for showcasing innovation in relevant industry sectors
- engagement with a knowledgeable network of entrepreneurs, executives and other business people
CYTO Innovation is part of ISAC’s wider mission of advancing cytometry and aims to serve members and Congress attendees seeking to translate their research into high-impact products and services. It is open to Full Congress Registrants; no additional fees apply.
Showcase Your Innovative Technology at CYTO Innovation
A highlight of CYTO Innovation 2019 is the Technology Showcase. The 5 minute Technology Showcase presentations allow scientists and engineers who seek to commercialize new technologies and services for cell analysis to present their plans to an audience of cytometrists, entrepreneurs, investors, and business development professionals from established corporations. Several presenters from past CYTO Innovation sessions entered business arrangements with large companies following their presentation.
A technology showcase presentation should:
- Define the proposed product or service.
- Highlight the novelty of the idea/invention/service.
- Identify the application area and the impact the technology will have on the practice of cytometry.
- Describe the level of implementation/position in the product development plan.
- Provide a short, concise description of the plan on how to take the idea to market.
- Ask for feedback from members of the audience.
