Fluidic Analytics is developing products based on a new technology for protein characterisation that emerged from the labs of Professor Tuomas Knowles at the University of Cambridge.
Here a group of scientists were inspired by the roles that proteins play in the biological world and driven to understand about how they behave and function but, frustrated by the lack of suitable tools for protein characterisation, they decided to invent their own.
Their vision is that protein science will transform our understanding of how the biological world operates in real time, a transformation every bit as revolutionary as the one we’ve seen in DNA sequencing. And Fluidic Analytics aim to make this vision a reality by developing products that enable easier, faster, more convenient and more accurate protein characterisation, whether in the lab, at the bedside or in everyday life.
Their first product, the Fluidity One, and the family of instruments that follow address the key market segments of protein quantitation, quantitative immunoassays and protein-protein interactions – segments that are predicted to account for more than US$2 billion in combined sales by 2020.
