Work to begin on automated genome-editing platform
August 2017
SHARING OPTIONS:

CAMBRIDGE, U.K.—A $1.25-million grant from InnovateUK was awarded last month to Sphere Fluidics Limited and its partners for the development of a novel, automated single-cell genome-engineering platform. Also included in the grant syndicate are Horizon Discovery, Twist Bioscience and the University of Edinburgh.
 
“The aim of this project is to generate an automated, benchtop device for the creation of high-value, genome-edited cell lines. Genome editing is rapidly becoming an essential tool across all areas of life sciences R&D (e.g. basic research, diagnostics, gene therapy and regenerative medicine, synthetic biology and bio-manufacturing). By 2020, the global market is estimated to be worth almost $2 billion ... and rapidly growing with a CAGR of around 36 percent,” said Dr. Marian Rehak, R&D director at Sphere Fluidics Limited.
