HCS Firm Cellumen Snags Series A Funding

NEW YORK, June 20 (GenomeWeb News) - PA Early Stage Partners, a family of venture funds based in Wayne, Penn., said today that it has made a Series A investment in high-content screening firm Cellumen.

 

Cellumen, based in Pittsburgh, measures proteins and RNA in cells using multiple high-content screening platforms along with several proprietary reagents. It was founded by Lansing Taylor, who also founded the high-content screening tool provider Cellomics.

 

The amount of the investment was not provided.

 

For further details on Cellumen's business model and strategy following the financing, see the June 13 issue of Cell-Based Assay News, a GenomeWeb News sister publication.
