Regencor Inc. is focused on developing a new therapy to regenerate the human heart after a heart attack. The therapy is delivered by existing standard of care coronary revascularization procedures. The Company has discovered that a hypo-glycosylated variant of the normal circulating human protein, Follistatin-Like 1 (hgFSTL-1), regenerates lost cardiac muscle and blood vessels, and significantly reduces scar volume when delivered to the adult mammalian heart after infarction.

ThinkCyte has built the Ghost Cytometry technology, the world's first high-throughput image-based cell sorting system by integrating advanced imaging, machine learning and microfluidics technologies. It enables researchers to identify cells based on their high content phenotypes (i.e. fluorescence and phase images) and isolate the target cells at high throughput, even without any labels. This innovative approach brings high-throughput, content-rich analysis and sorting on a single cell level to disciplines such as phenotypic drug screening and cell therapy.
