DVDs Available:

The Purdue group has a new DVD-Booklet package focused on Global Health, aimed at sharing ideas and information about innovative programs in resource-limited countries. We will freely distribute 100,000 copies around the world. Publication date for this product was May 2009. ..


This is a high profile project and we encourage individuals and institutions to distribute copies. To do so, please send an email to: or go to Global Health DVD


A significant amount of sponsorship is available for this project. With 20,000 distribution, this project will be very attractive to sponsors. To inquire about furture opportunities please contact us at:

Everest Greeting to Cytometry community from JPR

Dr. J. Paul Robinson, PUCL Director has just returned from Nepal having sucessfully summited the world's tallest mountain at 29,035ft.


The effort was closely related to raising awareness of the devastating problems of AIDS in resource-limited countries, with the goal of raising money for Purdue's nonprofit Cytometry for Life program.C4L is developing low-cost diagnostics to help HIV/AIDS victims in rural Africa receive treatment. You can follow the timeline of the climb his blog.

Welcome, PUCL:

We present cytometry and confocal microscopy education and research material, maintain the cytometry email archive,and links to cytometry web sites and suppliers worldwide.


Our goal is to share high-quality information and to maintain electronic crossroad for cytometry. In 1993, we established the first web site in cytometry. It has matured and evolved with time. We did this because of our interest and dedication to the philosophy of sharing educational material.


A new project we are involved with is an NIH SPARC grant - you can see this project here
