Sphere Fluidics Files Two New PCT Patents on Novel Detection Methods

Sphere Fluidics’ scientists have filed two separate PCT patents on the use of novel detection systems and methods to visualise single cells in picodroplets. Dr Clive Smith (Principal Scientist) was one of the key inventors and stated “These new patents protect validated new approaches that enable us to improve counting of one or more cells in picodroplets and accurately sort out the “single cell actives” from background populations of millions of cells.” Dr Marian Rehak (R&D Director) said “These patents further strengthen our international patent portfolio and improve the technical performance of new instrumenation (e.g. Cyto-Mine) that we are developing”.
