The Durham, North Carolina-based startup's platform uses an image-based, tissue box-sized tool that cultures cells to capture long-term phenotypic behavior.

The firm will use the funds to advance its high-throughput single-cell analysis platform to analyze heterogeneity in cell populations for research and drug discovery.

The assay will combine the company's CytoSort assay with its automated AIR system for imaging, sorting, and isolating single cells and small colonies.

The firm's automated AIR sample prep technology quickly images, sorts, and isolates single cells for downstream molecular analysis.

The tool uses magnetic, gold-coated electrodes to detect microRNA in blood within a concentration range of 10 attomolar to 1 nanomolar in 30 minutes.
