We envision a world where information about proteins and their behaviour transforms our understanding of how the biological world operates, and helps all of us make better decisions about how we diagnose diseases, develop treatments and maintain our personal well-being.
Our roots stretch back to a group of scientists who were inspired by the roles that proteins play in the biological world, driven to understand more about how proteins behave and function in real time, but frustrated by the lack of suitable tools for protein characterisation. So we decided to invent our own.
“In the play of life, DNA is the script but proteins are the actors”
Dr James Watson, Nobel Laureate and Co-Discoverer of the Structure of DNA
Proteins are the building blocks of life. They form the structure of cells, regulate cellular activity and carry out the biochemical processes that underpin function in every living organism. Just as DNA tells what could happen over lifetimes, proteins and their behaviour tell us what is happening now.
Fluidic Analytics envisions a world where information about proteins and their behaviour transforms our understanding of how the biological world operates, and helps all of us make better decisions about how we diagnose diseases, develop treatments and maintain our personal well-being.
By building the world’s best tools, software and services for protein characterisation and making them universally accessible in the lab, in the clinic or at home, we are making this vision a reality not just for a small group of expert users, but for everyone who can benefit.
Our products are based on a fundamentally new technology platform developed at the University of Cambridge. This platform enables the rapid characterisation of proteins based on the physical properties that determine their function. And because proteins are characterised in solution and in their natural state – without the need for surfaces, matrices or ionisation – this platform gives our customers access to unique quantitative insights into protein behaviour that are not accessible using other approaches.
Our first product – the Fluidity One – helps scientists in the lab determine protein folding, aggregation, degradation and more in a rapid, convenient workflow that consumes just microlitres of sample.
And we’re only just beginning. The Fluidity One is just the first in a series of products that will make it easier for our customers to extract unprecedented insights for an ever-expanding range of applications.
Our ambition is to build one of the most significant life-science companies of all time. We obsess about bringing exceptional people together, communicating clearly and producing exemplary results. We seek to do things that make the biggest possible difference, understand deeply the problems we are solving and implement solutions that really work. And we are privileged to have the backing of some of the most foresighted venture investors in the world.
