CELLINK has been awarded the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 for the design of the live-cell imaging microscopy system CELLCYTE X. This means that CELLINK is one of the winners in the world’s most renowned design competition, recognized as a high achievement of design quality with entries from top companies all over the world.
“We are truly honored to get this recognition.
