St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is known for performing groundbreaking and life changing research; and the Office of Technology Licensing endeavors to facilitate the development of innovations originating during this research into products that can benefit St. Jude patients and the public at large. Sometimes, small things can make a big difference, as is the case with Flowmi™ Cell Strainers, a filter co-designed by Dr. Steven Zatechka at St. Jude and researchers Bel-Art Labs to improve flow cytometry. Flowmi is a fast and efficient cell strainer that joins to the end a micropipette tip and allows users to strain debris from a sample just prior to analysis by flow cytometers. These filters are designed to preserve sample volume and avoid clogs, and are recommended for use with samples having a maximum concentration of 2MM cells/ml.
