Q How did InvitroCue come about?

A (Dr Fang) Many of the technologies that InvitroCue is commercialising today were developed by Professor Yu and his team, who are also working for the company now in its effort to take them to market.

The development process took about six to seven years, in collaboration with A*Star, the National University of Singapore and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States.

We started the company in 2012 to license these technologies from A*Star. In a sense, the technologies are the ones being spun off. The company was created to hold the licences to the technologies, bring in the investment capital needed and grow the technologies.
