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.

Indee Labs was founded onin August 16, 2015 with a 'mission to democratize gene-modified cell therapies' such as chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CAR-T). The team is developing a novel transfection technology that can rapidly and efficiently deliver a variety of genetic material (e.g., DNA, RNA, protein and/or various complexes) to human primary immune cells in seconds.
