Fluidic Analytics: innovative protein analysis technology
Fluidic Analytics, a spin-out company established in 2013 following BBSRC-funded research led by Professor Tuomas Knowles at the University of Cambridge, has developed a new device that can characterise protein behaviour at volumes one thousand times smaller than conventional analytical techniques.

|£320k||Value of BBSRC funding that contributed to the research|
The device, known as Fluidity One, vastly improves the quality and quantity of data available to researchers. It is based on a novel approach that enables researchers to isolate individual proteins within nanolitres of water. Fluidic Analytics was spun out to manufacture and sell the new device.
The company now employs 25 people at its base in Cambridge, where Fluidity One is manufactured, and has already received £5.3 million in Series B venture capital funding to develop tools that have applications spanning clinical diagnostics and consumer healthcare.
