Richard Chasen Spero's Biography



Richard Chasen Spero, CEO, Redbud Labs

Richard Spero is co-founder and CEO of Redbud Labs, where he leads both commercial activities and the company’s systems engineering team. He is a co-inventor of Redbud Posts, a MEMS chip covered with biomimetic cilia. Redbud Posts enable novel methods for fluid processing at the microscale, including pumping, mixing, cell sorting, and analyte isolation. This technology is used by point-of-care diagnostic device developers to improve assay speed, reliability, and performance. Prior to founding Redbud Labs, Dr. Spero earned his PhD in Physics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he studied blood clot rheology and developed novel systems for magnetic manipulation and time-dependent high content screening.

Despite booming investment, the use of microfluidic and sample-to-answer platforms is still dwarfed by traditional molecular tests and immunoassays. Imagine being able to rapidly port this vast back-catalogue of assays to a cartridge-based format. We report on the development of modular microfluidic chips that can readily implement a wide range of legacy assays without degradation in performance, from isothermal amplification to nucleic acid purification.
