  • Single cell RNA-Seq
  • Direct isolation of functional antibody coding sequence libraries
  • Profiling natively-paired T-cell receptors
  • Directed evolution by FACS sorting
  • Functional antibody screening in droplets
  • Cell encapsulation in hydrogels

Mike Hawes, CEO of Dolomite Bio, said: “Our first year’s sales clearly demonstrate the potential of Dolomite Bio and its single cell technology. With a team of single cell experts and numerous exciting developments underway, Dolomite Bio is in an excellent position to continue this growth and we look forward to further success in the coming year.”
