Sony Biotechnology Inc.

Sony Biotechnology was founded in 1995 and is based in San Jose, California and has affiliate offices in Japan, China, Europe as well as distributors in many regions of the world.Over the years, Sony Biotechnology products have received numerous outstanding new product awards as well as technology awards including the Frost & Sullivan Emerging Technology award, and the Milestone Award. Sony Biotechnology Innovations To improve stability, Sony systems allow direct monitoring of particle flow status using technology originally developed for the Blu-ray disk that delivers error free performance while operating at very high speed. In conventional flow cytometers, this accuracy largely depends on skillful operators. To deliver very low noise electronics, Sony Cytometers incorporate technologies that have brought pure, true sound to music. This Sony know-how reduces signal noise from the electric circuit currents to achieve very low noise electronics so that rogue signal noise does not get in the way of delivering accurate results to scientists. In addition, Sony Biotechnology has developed an innovative approach to capturing and decoding the information gained through flow cytometry. Spectral analysis technology unique to Sony flow cytometers enables scientists to better visualize flow cytometric data by collecting and saving a wider spectrum of visual information and allowing scientists to examine that information with greater granularity—down to individual spectral fingerprints. As a result, spectral technology reduces complexities associated with flow cytometric analysis, improves detection of rare populations and accuracy of fluorescent data including independent signal detection of autofluorescence –all of these are critical to biomedical discovery.
