Thank you to everyone who entered the contest! After receiving thousands of entries from scientists across the globe, we are pleased to announce our winner—Dr. Christina Roark from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus!
“I was so surprised and excited to win the CellDrop!” said Dr. Roark. “Our lab owns a DeNovix spectrophotometer and really like how it works and how easy it is to maintain. I had been looking at the CellDrop since it can use dual fluorescence for counting and it does not use slides, which is good for the environment.”
“Our lab’s research focuses on the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and its role in autoimmunity. We study differences in peptide binding to cell lines that express HLA molecules that are associated with susceptibility and resistance in different disease models. We also use transgenic mice that express different HLA molecules to look at T cell responses.”
“The CellDrop will play an important role in our lab for counting the numerous cell lines we have before testing them. It is important to have an accurate count since we are comparing peptide binding to them and differences in cell number could impact the results. Using the CellDrop will also eliminate user-to-user variability seen when counting with other methods. In addition, our cell lines are GFP transfected which we will be able to detect using the CellDrop. Finally, we are excited to use the dual fluorescence capability of the CellDrop to count cells from heterogeneous cell populations, for example splenocytes from mice or human peripheral blood.”
“We want to thank DeNovix for this prize and we know this instrument will make our lab workflow more efficient. Thank you!”
