"We couldn't be more ready or enthusiastic to introduce MonoPrep," says Jim Cureton, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MonoGen, "We are extremely excited to show the benefits of MonoPrep in terms laboratory efficiency, patient safety, and cellular clarity resulting from complete automation. The MonoPrep will be the first fully-automated and integrated cytopathology preparation system available to the market."

MonoGen recently completed its first four-week sales training program in September resulting in an already experienced and motivated team. Importantly, feedback received from their initial customer meetings has been highly encouraging. Independent market research tells us there is a high level of interest for MonoPrep and all these factors are driving our enthusiasm towards market launch."
