CAMBRIDGE, England, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Sphere Fluidics, an early-stage, Cambridge-based company focusing on developing novel products and services for single cell analysis, has just completed a $2.5 million investment round. The investment syndicate was led by 24Haymarket and included the Royal Society, Cambridge Enterprise Limited, Providence Investment Company Limited, University of Cambridge Enterprise Fund, the London Business Angels Roundtable EIS Fund and a number of individual angels from London (including members of the London Business Angels) and Cambridge.
