Welcome to the Cytobank Blog

Here’s a quick post welcoming everyone to our brand new blog.  One of the things you can expect to see here are posts about our software releases, which will provide a list of new features and bug fixes that have just been launched to our production servers.  We’re also going to try to have discussions about various aspects of cytometry and ideally even some guest posts from our friends in industry and academia.

Please feel free to leave comments, feedback, and questions on our posts.  We’ll try to respond in a timely manner.
