Sphere Fluidics Limited is a life sciences company originally spun out from the University of Cambridge in the UK. On December 6, 2016, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded Sphere Fluidics U.S. Patent No. 9,513,207, entitled “Emulsion.” The patent describes an emulsion for sorting droplets in a microfluidic device. The patent also describes a proliferation assay in which cells may be cultured within the microdroplets in the presence of a drug intended to inhibit cell proliferation and then the cells in each droplet counted to determine whether or not cells have been able to grow in the presence of the drug. In this way, for example, the resistance of a bacterium to antibiotics may be determined.
Renner Kenner is proud to support Mission 22. Mission 22 is dedicated to healing America’s Veterans when they need it most — right now — by offering treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and all of the issues our Veterans are facing today. Mission 22 serves combat Veterans, those injured in training who therefore could not deploy, and victims of MST.

Through their efforts, Mission 22 continues to raise awareness, enlist support, and strive toward ending Veteran suicide in America. See how you can get involved and help:
