PRECYM offers the teams of the MIO, alongside any unit or research institute in the public or private domain, to benefit from its equipment and know-how. PRECYM operates in several fields at the national and international level through its three missions, which are research and development, coaching, and training:

  • Support for the development and/or improvement of an experimental protocol
  • Technological developments
  • Assistance in the analysis and interpretation of cytometry data and results
  • Training in flow-cytometry technology (theory and practice)
  • Training in the use of platform instruments
  • Expertise for private laboratories for both analysis and sample sorting

PRECYM is co-financed by the European Union, via the European Regional Development Funds.
