High Throughput Tissue SamplingNineSigma is looking for proposals for High Throughput Tissue Sampling. NineSigma’s client, Altria, is interested in technology that supports high throughput sampling and sample tracking for tissue cultures.  This technology would be used internally to support gene modification work.  Altria would like to automate the process by which tissue cultures are sampled and evaluated.  Ideal solutions will be able to take samples from an array of cultures in a way that allows the rest of the sample to continue growing.  The tissue cultures to be sampled have an average surface area of roughly 0.25-0.5 cm2. Desired sample size is flexible and may range from 1mm2 up to ½ of the original culture size.  The samples collected will be subject to PCR and subsequent sequencing. Deadline for proposals: January 6, 2017 Read full specs
