RainDance Technologies is a provider of microdroplet-based solutions that accelerate human health and disease research. At the core of RainDance’s detection technology is a microfluidic chipset known as a “RainDrop”. The company develops a technology that doctors can use to screen small amounts of fluid to identify the component molecules in the liquid. Once the component molecules are separated out, they are examined for mutant DNA or RNA, or for the presence of viruses. The complete RainDance solution includes automated instrumentation, customizable bioinformatics, and high-value consumables and reagents for applications. The company supports scientists around the world through its international sales and support operations and a global network of distributors and service providers.
