The client aims at rapid collection of living cells with specific characteristics using the fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS) by developing an easy in vivo fluorescence labeling technology for any protein or mRNA. While many fluorescence labeling technologies targeting a specific substance in living cells already exist, it is still challenging to develop a versatile technology that can be applied to any target protein or mRNA.

Anticipated Project Process
After reviewing submitted proposals, the client possibly ask clarifying questions before selecting the most suitable candidates for collaboration. The client will select best candidates through evaluations. During the selection process, the client may execute NDA with selected respondents, seek further information disclosure, and discuss specific development targets or potential opportunities.
The client will execute necessary agreements with the selected respondents and move to the advanced development phase. Specifics of any collaboration will be determined through consultation with the concerned parties.
