$200,000 two-year grant will advance separation and sorting of whole chromosomes from a single cell or multiple cells.
BioNanomatrix and Princeton University received a two-year, $200,000 Small Technology Transfer Research grant from the NCI. The funding will be used to develop an integrated fluidics systems for the front-end sample sorting component of the BioNanomatrix whole genome analytical platform.
BioNanomatrix says that it is developing tools that enable nanoscale single molecule identification and analysis of the entire genome, delivering single molecule sensitivity in a highly parallel format. The goal of the current NCI-backed project is to create integrated systems that can separate out and sort whole chromosomes from a single cell or multiple cells.
