“As evidenced by its products, technology, people and business trajectory, DVS is an extraordinary company. We are thrilled to have it become part of Fluidigm,” said Gajus Worthington, Fluidigm President and Chief Executive Officer. “2013 was an incredible year for Fluidigm as we took our business and scientific influence to a new level. Now we are doubling our efforts to take our newly combined company and collective capabilities to new heights. Fluidigm now offers a comprehensive portfolio of genomic and proteomic solutions for this new and very exciting field of single-cell biology.”
