My life with the Attune NxT Cytometer

Dr Sainz


The 4 laser Invitrogen™ Attune™ NxT Flow Cytometer, awarded in October 2015 to Dr Bruno Sainz, has arrived at the Autonoma University in Madrid, Spain.

Dr Sainz and his team are now working on the winning project “Development of a state-of-the art liquid biopsy assay for the detection of circulating cancer stem cells fused to macrophages in human blood samples”. Dr Sainz, who holds the prestigious Ramon and Cajal Investigator title, is a highly recognised scientist in the field of cancer stem cell (CSC) and CSC-mediated tumorigenesis and metastasis. He has published more than 40 peer-reviewed papers on these topics and before being appointed to the Autonoma University in Madrid, worked for the prestigious institutions of Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA and University of Illinois at Chicago, IL.
