Sphere Fluidics recently closed a $4.8 million USD (£3.7 million) funding round, enabling it to hire 10 new staff to expand commercial capabilities and facilitate service and support for its Cyto-Mine® Single Cell Analysis System. Sphere Fluidics sales, marketing, finance and operations teams join the specialist skills pool at Granta Park, one of the UK’s leading life-science research parks, positioned within the Cambridge Science Cluster, taking 1,038 sq. ft in the McClintock Building. The Park is home to over 2,500 people and multiple organizations, placing the Company in close proximity to high-quality research and commercialization activity, and opening up the opportunity for further collaborations with potential partners, researchers and suppliers based on the campus.
Sphere Fluidics’ new facilities at Granta Park are in addition to its offices at Babraham Research Campus, Cambridgeshire, UK and Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, USA. The Company also has an established network of international distributors in Japan, France, China, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Benelux, Australia, Scandinavia and Korea.
Rob Treanor, Director of Operations, Sphere Fluidics, commented:
Recent investment has enabled Sphere Fluidics to accelerate its plans to expand commercial and scientific activities and we are now raising further funding to invest in more new hires and increase our presence in not only the UK but also, the US. It is vital that we are positioned in locations with a flexible and innovative network and look forward to joining the collaborative culture at Granta Park to support these growth projections.”
