their Muse® Cell Analyzer and a Bronze Stevie® Award for their Direct
Detect® Protein Quantitation System. These awards were distributed by
the American Business AwardsSM, the premier business award
program in the United States. Finalists were announced in June, with the
recipient announced at the New Product and Technology Awards Banquet on
Monday, September 16 in San Francisco. Finalists and rankings were

Accepting these awards for EMD Millipore was Warren Hinds, Operations
Manager for EMD Millipore. "I was honored to attend the ceremony and
accept the awards on behalf of the EMD Millipore R&D, Applications and
Operations teams," said Warren. "We are proud of our accomplishment, and
the recognition by the ABA. The awards acknowledge the long history of
innovation that has been a hallmark of our success at EMD Millipore."
The Muse® Cell Analyzer is a miniaturized benchtop flow cytometer that
provides greater accuracy and precision than manual hemocytometry or
image-based automated analysis, delivering multi-dimensional information
on cell populations. More compact, affordable, and simpler to use than
traditional systems, the Muse® Cell Analyzer is accessible to
researchers of all levels, empowering faster, more accurate
decision-making; for more productive workflows and better insight into
cell health, apoptosis, cell signaling, immune response and other
commonly studied cell mehanisms.
The Direct Detect® system for rapid, simplified protein quantitation
taps into EMD Millipore's membrane expertise to enable infrared-based
measurement of amide bonds in protein chains, an intrinsic component of
every protein, without relying on amino acid composition, dye-binding
properties or redox potential. The Direct Detect® system enables
researchers to improve the speed and accuracy of their quantitation, a
necessary component of most downstream applications.
More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and
virtually every industry were submitted to The American Business AwardsSM
for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most
Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New
Product or Service of the Year, and Executive of the Year. Roughly 35%
of submissions were named finalists by a panel of more than 200
executives over five weeks of judging. EMD Millipore's Muse® and Direct
Detect® products received awards in the New Product of the Year category
for Health and Pharmaceutical Products.
