About the Presenter


John Younger
Chief Technology Officer
Akadeum Life Sciences

John Younger formed Akadeum Life Sciences in 2014 with his co-founder Brandon McNaughton to bring microbubble-based tools to the life sciences. Buoyancy is a powerful alternative to magnetic methods for cell separation and offers exciting new ways of working with samples in research, diagnostic, and therapeutic applications. Prior to joining Akadeum, John enjoyed a 21-year career as a physician scientist at the University of Michigan. While his clinical practice was in emergency medicine, his laboratory focused on the ways in which living cells interact—for good or ill—with engineered materials.

Webinar Summary

John will present a short technical background about buoyant cell isolation, highlighting how microbubbles differ from magnetic particles. Next, he will share how microbubbles are improving the ways that users are preparing samples for flow cytometry and FACS. To wrap up, John will review current products available and give a preview about what cell separation products are coming. Lastly, for upcoming products, John will discuss how you and your team can have early access to kits.

Learning Objectives

  • Review how microbubbles can improve your research and development.
  • Examine how microbubbles can replace or be combined with your current magnetic methods.
  • Discuss what new Akadeum products are coming in 2018 and 2019.

Who Should Attend

Researchers who want a simple way to isolate cells with no columns and no magnets.
