This round of investment was led by Northern Light Venture Capital, jointly followed by investors including Co-Win Ventures, CDH Investments, Fortune Capital and TusStar.
After this financing, Computational SR aims to expand its product pipeline of super-resolution microscopy, and improve services including cell culture, sample labeling, imaging acquisition, image reconstruction, data post-processing analysis and data presentation.
Founded in April 2019, Computational SR is a high-tech enterprise focusing on the R&D and application of super-resolution imaging of living cells. Its business mainly involves super-resolution microscopes and biological sample services, which includes customized imaging detection, data processing, quantitative analysis and visualization of batch biological samples.
The company received a seed round of financing in April 2020. In addition to the Guangzhou headquarters, Computational SR built an R&D center in Beijing in March 2021. It has cell culture rooms and imaging rooms in these two locations, as well as many core research and experimental talent.
Northern Light Venture Capital pointed out that “the super-resolution microscopy and image analysis products of Computational SR are very important for biological research to realize subcellular resolution. Especially in the field of living cell imaging, its products can provide more information and insights.”
