ANN ARBOR, Mich., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Accuri Cytometers Inc., a life sciences company developing revolutionary bench-top flow cytometer systems, today announced the first recipient of its Accuri Flow Cytometer Creativity Awards program. Heather Newkirk, Ph.D., Executive Director of Business Development and Quality Assurance/Regulatory Affairs at Clinical Reference Laboratory, Inc. and an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, will receive a free Accuri C6 Flow Cytometer(R) System. Accuri's twice-yearly Creativity Awards program was created to foster innovative research that taps the unrealized potential of flow cytometry and expands its use to novel applications that are newly possible as a result of the unique capabilities of the Accuri C6 system.

Explicitly designed for routine use by biomedical researchers in their own labs, Accuri's C6 Flow Cytometer is a full-featured bench-top cell analysis system that provides capabilities similar to industry leaders in a more user-friendly format and at a fraction of the cost of other flow cytometers.

"We are gratified by the quality and creativity of this first group of research proposals for our Creativity Awards program," said Grant Howes, an industry veteran who recently joined Accuri as Director of Marketing. "A key driver behind the development of the C6 system was our belief that the research power of flow cytometry has been hampered by its lack of wide accessibility. The diverse and imaginative responses to the first round of our Awards program provide concrete evidence that our accessible, affordable flow cytometer system can help unleash the full potential of flow cytometry."

Accuri designed the revolutionary C6 system from the ground up with input from hundreds of researchers who use flow cytometry, and it specially commissioned the easy-to-use cell analysis software that is a critical component of the approach. Accuri's innovations, coupled with its state-of-the-art components, result in a cytometer that is powerful, robust, compact and affordable, at less than one-third the cost of the current market leader.

Dr. Newkirk, the recipient of the first C6 Flow Cytometer System awarded by Accuri's Creativity Awards program, plans to use bead-based assays to detect direct genomic translocations, an approach that could be applied to a myriad of genomic rearrangements, including detecting specific translocations in certain cancers. She noted, "Flow cytometry offers researchers the chance to innovate in the design of a variety of assays, and I am excited by the opportunity to develop new assays to be performed on the C6 flow cytometer. It is encouraging to see that flow cytometry has been translated into a user-friendly, lower-cost system with the invention of the C6."

Dr. Newkirk will receive her C6 system early in 2009. It will be hers to keep, along with a year-long warranty as part of the award.

Jennifer Baird, CEO of Accuri, commented, "We are delighted to announce our first Accuri Flow Cytometer Creativity Awards winner. Dr. Newkirk's genomics research proposal is a fitting illustration of why we believe that the versatility and accessibility of our flow cytometer system will generate innovative research and a host of creative applications. We congratulate her and her team and look forward to seeing the fruits of their research, as well as many more proposals from researchers around the globe."
