How does it work?
As soon as you sign up for Alexa Fluor® World you can visit the competition area and create your own cell story, letting us know how you would use Alexa Fluor® to make your research dreams come true.

You can enter as many times as you like and invite your friends to join in too – the most inspirational ideas will win fantastic prizes. And YOU get to choose who the winners are!

There are plenty of opportunities for you to win great prizes! 3 prizes will be awarded every single month for the best entries and an overall winner will be chosen by YOUR VOTES at the end of 2010.
