cell sorting

The firm has developed microbubbles that bind to target molecules based on surface antibodies.

The firm plans to expedite cell sorting for  research labs with an inexpensive  device that uses piezoelectric actuators and disposable microfluidics.

The Ann Arbor-based biotech startup will use the funding to develop its microbubble technology that allows for removal of biomolecules from biological samples.

Namocell's single cell sorting instrument is designed to perform single cell sorting and dispensing in one step through a microfluidic channel.

The partners will jointly promote the BD FACS single-cell sorting instrument alongside Cellular Research's molecular bar-coding technology, Precise.
