Fluidigm Corporation’s C1TM Single-Cell Auto Prep System received the top prize in the Instrument Business Outlook’s (IBO) 20th Annual IBO Design Awards for excellence in industrial design. The C1 system won the Gold Award in the Analytical Instrument category.

IBO’s Industrial Design Awards are presented yearly and recognize recently introduced life science products whose physical appearance and features make a distinct and valuable impression, thus communicating the product’s functionality and value. The design elements of each system are integral to the product’s purpose and its relationship with the user, particularly in creating an inviting and intuitive user experience.

“We are grateful to have our C1 Single-Cell Auto Prep System selected as a winner in the 20th Annual IBO Design Awards,” said Candia Brown, Director, Product Marketing, Single-Cell Genomics, Fluidigm. “We believe in the symbiotic relationship between great technical capability and great design, and strived to bring both together in the C1 system. This award underscores our commitment to our customers and our goal to become the leading provider of integrated genomic solutions.”

“It’s an honor for IDE and Fluidigm to have the C1 system’s industrial design recognized with an international industrial design award. It’s a tribute to our entire C1 system design team and to Fluidigm management for setting the bar high for the system’s industrial design and allowing our design team the creative latitude to meet their goals,” said David Moriconi, President and CEO, IDE Incorporated.

Winners were disclosed in the August 15th issue of IBO, an industry newsletter published by Strategic Directions International, Inc., a management and marketing research firm that is a leading source of information on the market for analytical and life science instrumentation and equipment.
