December 2018

Happy holidays. It has been another busy year at Oxford Gene Technology – and a good year for Cytocell® products. We’ve launched a number of new FISH probes, now have over 800 custom myProbes® projects completed with our customers, and have expanded our accessory portfolio.

This year, we also celebrated the Sysmex 50th anniversary, and in September, we had employee celebrations around the world to mark this milestone.

As part of Sysmex, we were also happy to support the Kobe Marathon on November 19 in the Sysmex home town of Kobe, Japan. Sysmex has been a special sponsor of this event since 2011. Over 20,000 runners participated in the 26.2 mile run, including our own Cytocell Product Manager, Alex Hobbs. Read on to learn more about his experience there.

You’ll also find news about products and resources and the 2019 wall calendar. Please request one for your lab.

In the meantime, best wishes for happy holidays and a successful new year.

Kind regards,

Gareth Thomson, VP Sales, Europe
