Namocell has partnered with the two firms to distribute its cell dispensing tool in South Korea, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg.

Formerly known as SlipChip Corp, the firm has recently won nearly $10 million in funding to hone its approaches to sepsis and CT/NG testing.

The firm will use the proceeds to accelerate commercialization and deployment of its microfluidic technology and for working capital purposes.

The firm will use the net proceeds to advance commercialization of its microfluidic technology and for general corporate purposes.

Tomy Digital Biology has agreed to distribute Namocell's microfluidic-based cell platforms in the Japanese market.

The funding totals up to $5.6 million over five years and will incorporate Talis' proprietary SlipChip technology.

The Alameda, California-based startup will use the funding to advance the commercialization of its rapid diagnostic platform for infectious diseases.

The firm's microfluidic-based technology collects and purifies genetic material, causing a complete PCR reaction that identifies diseases in liquid samples.

Given the high yield of miRNA markers they were able to isolate, the researchers believe the approach could be commercialized for routine cancer testing.

The firm will begin initial trials for antibiotic-resistant urinary tract infection detection in UK hospitals in early 2018.
