Dolomite Bio 5 Year Anniversary- Where it all began

Dolomite Bio’s origins lie with the formation of the Blacktrace group of companies in 2001, which was soon followed by the creation of Dolomite Microfluidics in 2005. Building on 15 years of cutting-edge microfluidics experience to meet the growing demand from the life sciences sector, the sister company, Dolomite Bio, was founded in 2016. With the aim to create a biology focused brand that utilised Blacktrace and Dolomite Microfluidics’ underlying product technology, to fulfill the needs of a large and rapidly growing market.

After launching in March 2016, Dolomite Bio grew significantly in the first year to include clients in 32 countries and exceeding its sales target by 63%.

This was followed by the launch of a brand-new product family, the Nadia Platform, in 2017; taking scRNA-Seq to the next level by using automation and flexibility to generate high quality reproducible single cell data.

Fully developed protocol’s releases for scRNA-Seq and sNuc-Seq followed soon after in 2018. These applications were soon accompanied by the release of Agarose encapsulation in the 2019 and Plant Protoplast RNA-Seq in 2020.

2020 also included the launch of the Single Cell Consultancy; enabling customers to outsource their single cell projects to Dolomite Bio’s in-house team of experts.

Dolomite Bio’s team has grown from just 5 team members to the 23 we have now. In anticipation of the five-year anniversary, we created 5 spotlights highlighting each area of our company which helps to support our customers. Those past 5 years have been a busy time for the Dolomite Bio team, to highlight just some of what we’ve been up we have summarized our 5 years in numbers below.
