In collaboration with Kobe University and with support of NEDO, the project house of METI, Shimadzu has developed a “Biotransformer Extraction Total System” that can analyze 186 types of water-soluble cell metabolites at once, and a “Metabolome High-throughput evaluation system” that can find promising smart cell candidate cells in as little as one day. By using these systems to acquire enormous amounts of cell characteristics at high speed with high accuracy and design more appropriate metabolic pathways, it is claimed that smart cell candidate cells can be obtained with 20 times higher selection efficiency.
