Austin Coco
Laboratory Technician II

Hello, I’m Austin Coco!  As a laboratory technician, most of my time is spent running and analyzing client samples in the analytical lab.  Between my educational background in marine sciences and work experience in antibody manufacturing, I have acquired experience in a variety of applications that helps me develop methodologies and troubleshoot difficulties in the sample analysis process.  This especially comes in handy with the wide variety of samples we get in.  When not at work, I like to spend my free time either outside with my dog and my fiancée, playing games with friends, or taking care of my aquariums.
 
Austin Daniels, PhD
Application Scientist
 

Hi! I am Austin Daniels, one of the application scientists at Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies. I recently obtained a Ph.D. in chemical engineering that focused on therapeutic protein formulations and how analytical techniques combined with deep learning tools like neural networks can be used to monitor the stability of these formulations. I am one of our in-house experts on biopharma FlowCam applications and artificial intelligence as part of the development team behind VisualAI. I am fascinated by the possibilities FlowCam and AI offer as a unique particle analysis platform and am interested in exploring new applications for both technologies in biopharma and beyond. Besides work, I am an avid musician and enjoy going on hikes and playing board games with friends and family. 

Nicole Gill
Analytical Laboratory Manager
 

Hi, I’m Nicole Gill! I oversee the FlowCam Analytical lab and have analyzed dozens of different sample types for biopharma, aquatic, and industrial clients. Some of my favorites have included pollen grains, nematodes, sponge spicules, salmon lice, cellulose fibers, hydrogel spheres, and lipid nanoparticles. I love testing new applications and helping our customers understand how FlowCam can be used to accomplish their research goals. My background is in marine biology, and in using various technologies to assess fisheries health. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, and exploring Maine’s beautiful natural resources! 

Louise Brogan, PhD
Application Scientist
 

Hello, I’m Louise Brogan! I am a protein biochemist and cell & molecular biologist, and I am excited to join the FlowCam team as an Application Scientist! I come to Yokogawa Fluid Imaging Technologies with a depth of experience in both industry and academia and I look forward to identifying new life science markets that can benefit from FlowCam particle imaging capabilities. When I am away from work, I enjoy cooking, (…well, eating!), running, skiing, and open-water swimming!  

Please reach out to us directly if you are interested in sample analysis or learning more about FlowCam applications. You can also meet in person at a variety of tradeshows and conferences. We look forward to hearing from you!
