Cégep de Sherbrooke will receive a $105,000 Applied Research Tools and Instruments Grant that will benefit local students and businesses through collaborative research projects.
The financial contribution, granted for the “Development of high-performance analytical approaches using cytometry” project, will be used to purchase two portable cytometers for the Techniques de laboratoire: biotechnologies program, as well as a lyophilizator, a device that will benefit several programs.
