"team and vortex shedding clarification"
21 Sep 2018 7:21 pm

Article  (+0/-0 images) (+0/-0 videos) (+169/-0 characters)

The core technology, microfluidic vortex shedding (μVS), uses a microscopic fluid dynamics phenomenon based on vortex shedding to hydrodynamically porate the cell membrane allowing for the deliberate introduction of genetic material to human primary immune cells. Vortex shedding is not a new phenomenon. It can be observed as water flows past boulders in rivers while also being seen as clouds drift over mountains.

In July 2017, Indee Labs closed USD$1.3M in accelerator and angel financing from SOSV, IndieBio, Jude Gomila, Shaun Maguire, Y Combinator and Jaffray Woodriff (executed by his family office, Felton Group, LLC) among others.
