About Us

Our Journey: a word from our CEO

Photograph of the Applied Cytometry Staff Team for the About Us page

I began designing flow cytometry analysis software in the early 1990’s for a friend that ran a core facility. At that time there wasn’t really any flow cytometry analysis software on the market.

After this I began working with a variety of flow cytometry companies, such as Beckman Coulter creating high-speed data acquisition software until the mid-2000s.

The Applied Cytometry team formed in 1993 and have been together since. However, it wasn’t until 2012 that Applied Cytometry became an official organisation. 

An average year of business for AC consists of working on business-to-business contracts and developing our own solutions. Find out more about our products! 

My favourite part of the work we do here is presenting our finished products to customers especially when we receive positive feedback.

The culture here at AC is very collegial; everyone working for the company is valued and treated with the same respect.

AC has patented a lot of new technology, but for me the most fulfilling aspect of the job has been rolling out software fit for clinical diagnosis with FDA approval. 

The future of flow cytometry is finding faster and more inexpensive ways to analyse lots of data so we are focusing our efforts on creating  cloud-based solutions to help speed-up high density data processing.

The future of technology in general is moving towards software on any device- anytime, anyplace, anywhere which is why I believe focusing on cloud-based solutions will help keep flow cytometry moving with the times.

Since joining AC as a undergraduate I have been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to learn all about the fascinating world of flow cytometry whilst also growing my skills within the company; I even got to go to my first CYTO in Philadelphia! My goal is to help Applied Cytometry grow its online presence as a quality provider of flow cytometry analysis tools through creative marketing efforts. I also work closely supporting customer enquiries.

What’s next for Applied Cytometry in 2024

2023 has been a whirlwind of a year with the introduction of our new Fundamentals of Flow Cytometry courses and our attending many conferences, including CYTO in Montreal. Behind the scenes we are developing a range of new products that bring the power of your data to you, wherever you are. No lab? No problem!

Hybrid Working

In 2020 the world changed. Working in non-lab environments became the norm, and earlier solutions were no longer fit for purpose.

Our strategy is to enable powerful analysis of flow cytometry data from anywhere. We’re working on future innovative solutions right now.

Clinical Studies

With challenging regulatory changes ahead, this year we’re deepening our clinical support with pathology lab focussed processes that deliver a clear path from data acquisition to results issue.  

VenturiOne 7.6 Coming Soon

In 2024 we are delivering user defined exporting to better support applications with customisable results, images, PowerPoints and PDFs. 

The new and improved 7.6 VenturiOne release brings this and more, without compromise on our commitment to fast interactive high dimensional analysis.

More Training Worldwide

Delivered by industry leaders, led by Derek Davies – we are going global this year! By providing new and experienced flow cytometry users with direct, face-to-face online tuition, you can get the best from your instrumentation and SRL.
