RainDance, Harvard share grant for microdroplet technology

The MLSC awarded a grant of $250,000 per year for three years to David Weitz, Mallinckrodt professor of physics and applied physics at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Physics Department, and RainDance Technologies of Lexington, Mass., to develop and demonstrate the use of a new form of fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS) used to collect biochemical information about individual cells. The researchers hope to explore new applications of FACS that have not yet been feasible, from basic biology and medical studies to drug development.

January 7, 2009: Energetiq Technology, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of specialized short-wavelength light products that enable nano-scale structures, has raised additional capital in its Series C round of financing. The financing was led by a new investor, Ushio Inc. , and supported by existing investors including Intel Capital and Shea Ventures.
