Since the last update a number of things have been happening.
We moved operations back to Denmark and are now working hard on development of the cell-BOCS cell-sorter.
- December 2011 we received a 750.000 DKK follow-up PoC grant to continue development of the cell-BOCS
- August 2012 we received a 2.5 M DKK grant form Novo Seeds/Novo Nordisk Foundation also targeted towards the cell-BOCS
Apart form this we have hired new staff focusing on microfluidics and biology.
Prof. Glückstad will be speaking at the 10th “Scanning Probe Microscopy & Optical Tweezers” October 6 in Berlin, Germany.
Join us to hear the latest in the development of the Cell-BOCS – Bio OptoFluidic Cell Sorter and the BioPhotonics Workstation.

As part of Photonics for a Better World, OptoRobotix displayed the new Cell-BOCS prototype cell sorter at SPIE Optics + Photonics 23 – 25-August 2011 in San Diego, California.
Photonics for a Better World
Optical and photonics technologies and the people who work with them have brought tangible social, environmental, health, and economic gains to humanity. These technologies include ones that bring inexpensive and efficient alternative energy to rural and developing areas without access to electricity and others that help people to see and hear.
Laser technologies make the world better also, by killing malaria-carrying mosquitoes, allowing surgeons to operate on tissue one cell at a time, and by telling farmers the best time to irrigate their fields.
Other optical and photonics technologies have lead to the growth of the entertainment industry and instant communications at home and in space. Food inspections and personal and community security also rely on photonics technologies.
OptoRobotix is proud to be invited to display our technology within cell sorting at SPIE Optics + Photonics.
OptoRobotix has added a microfluidic based cell sorting platform to it’s development pipeline.
The microfluidic chip based cell sorting platform is focused on meeting the needs of lower volume sorting in individual labs outside of the core facilities. The aim is to dramatically reduce the size and complexity of the sorter, such that it can be used by any lab personnel and transported for mobile use.

Professor Glückstad will be speaking at Physics Colloquium in Bristol, UK, May 16 2011 on: The BioPhotonics Workstation: From University Research to Commercial Prototype.
Venue: Tyndall Lecture Theatre of the H H Wills Physics Laboratory
H.H. Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol BS8 1TL, UK.
