The Cytometry Society of Ireland (CSI) was set up in 2005, to provide a forum for all who work in cytometry (flow cytometry and allied technologies) in Ireland. With members involved in fields as varied as marine biology, microbiology, immunology, drug development, neuroscience, haematology, nanotechnology, and clinical cytometry, this makes for a vibrant group, with scientists from diverse fields bringing their different perspectives and expertise. The society name was changed from Irish Cytometry Society (ICyS) in 2014.


In addition to the annual meetings, the society serves to provide members with a network to keep informed of developments, employment opportunities, as well as communications and requests regarding instrumentation, reagents, experimental design, etc.


With a conference each year, this is a great opportunity to keep abreast of advancements, liaise with colleagues, as well as interact with reagent and instrumentation vendors. These have proven hugely popular, with an annual attendance of more than 150 registrants.
