Organised by

Sociedad Ibérica de Citometría

The Iberian Cytometry Society was established in 1992, with the following aims:

  1. Develop studies and research on Cytometry, mainly in the field of Spain and Portugal
  2. Establish relations and cooperation mechanisms with those entities that pursue objectives analogous to those of the Company
  3. Disclose the discoveries and scientific advances obtained in the social communication media and in the most specific ones directed to the scientific or professional world,

The Citometry service has not stopped growing, since its foundation in 1989, both in number of trials and in other activities: development of its own research projects and collaboration with other departments of the USAL and other universities, signing of agreements with companies, participation in international groups of standardization of cytometric techniques, having consolidated as a national and international reference in flow cytometry. The Citometry service has always opted for the quality and improvement of the services offered. As a result of our commitment to quality and continuous improvement, in August 2007 we obtained the ISO 9001 certification granted by Bureau Veritas Certification and the UNE en ISO / IEC 15189 2003 standard for accreditation of clinical laboratories in 2018.

Our functions are:

  1. Provide support to research studies conducted at the University of Salamanca and other universities.
  2. Perform patient sample tests for public or private institutions, for which the service has four complementary technologies (immunophenotype, cell enrichment, in situ hybridization and molecular biology) to be able to offer, in a very reliable way, a large diagnostic compatibility. help for the diagnosis and monitoring of the patient. For this, it has specialized personnel with extensive experience in the diagnostic area by flow cytometry.
  3. Perform tests on all types of samples that can be analyzed by flow cytometry if the equipment and the necessary techniques are available.
  4. Develop research projects to expand, optimize, standardize and test the new reagents, methods and applications of cytometry.

In 1218 King Alfonso IX of León founded the University of Salamanca, which is considered the oldest of the existing Hispanic universities. In 1254 King Alfonso X establishes the norms of organization and financial endowments and in 1255 Alexander IV publishes papal bulls that recognize the universal validity of the degrees granted by him and he is granted the privilege of having his own seal.

The University of Salamanca will go through a time of unprecedented expansion with the creation of the first American universities, which from 1551 begin to be founded following the wake of the Salamanca by using their founding letters as a model. More than 70% of the universities created in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries now consider the University of Salamanca their ‘alma mater’. At this time, the prestige of Salamanca attracts a confluence of students from all over the peninsula, and even Europeans and Americans.
