Founded in 2011, Berkeley Lights, Inc. is dedicated to creating breakthrough technologies that fundamentally transform cell based biological processes to speed the discovery, development, and delivery of therapeutics. These technologies enable interactive biology at the cellular level using low-intensity visible light to bring the power of automated single-cell identification, manipulation, and live cell export to a broad range of scientific problems faced daily by researchers and others in the biotherapeutics community. Berkeley Lights’ BeaconTM platform enables novel cloning and cell line development workflows through massively parallel top clone selection with impressive timeline compression (as short as 5 days). Additional applications include plasma B cell-based antibody discovery, antibody engineering, gene editing, and immune cell isolation and interrogation.

  • Berkeley Lights’ BeaconTM platform automates cell line development by isolating thousands of single cells in individual nanofluidic chambers
  • After just five days, every cell has been characterized by growth rate, titer and Qp in a manner that is predictive of performance in bioreactors
  • The top-producing clones are selected and exported with better than 99% clonality and a complete visual record
