WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 19, 2021 — Thermo Fisher Scientific has acquired cell-sorting assets from Propel Labs, a wholly owned subsidiary of SIDIS Corp., adding to its existing flow-cytometry offerings and capabilities. Under terms of the agreement, Thermo Fisher’s biosciences business acquires the recently introduced Bigfoot Spectral Cell Sorter and approximately 40 employees. In a press release, Thermo Fisher said that by using the acquired technology, researchers can study more cell populations from samples of limited quantity, enabling a better understanding of biological systems at a scale and resolution needed for advancing science.

Propel Labs will continue to operate as a separate entity.
