o CIT GAP Funds Invest in Charlottesville-based Cerillo; Tech For Labs

Richmond, Va. -- The CIT GAP Funds, investment funds backed by the Virginia state government, has invested in Charlottesville-based Cerillo, a startup developing instruments and technologies used by scientists. Cerillo said it will use the proceeds for sales and marketing purposes. The company has developed a tool used by researchers for continuous data collection in a laboratory setting. “Cerillo’s first product significantly lowers the barrier to entry for researchers and microbiologists everywhere,” said Alex Euler, senior investment director of CIT GAP Funds. “The increased portability and reduced cost will enable discoveries by researchers for whom legacy instruments were entirely unsuitable.”
