Cell Microsystems, a provider of innovative tools for single cell research, announced today it has received two NIH Small Business Innovation and Research awards totaling $1.9M to automate CRISPR workflows using its proprietary CellRaft Technology. These grants will accelerate our on-going work toward automating CRISPR workflows on the CellRaft AIR™ System that will provide a more efficient alternative to other cloning and sorting technologies. Culturing viable, single cells on the CytoSort™ Array after applying guide RNAs, then tracking clonal colony formation and other phenotypes for screening, gives the CellRaft AIR System tremendous value in CRISPR workflows.
