A new sensor, using the latest optical and electrical technologies, monitoring tissue-cultured cells non-invasively, non-destructively, continuously and in real-time. These sensors are used broadly to monitor the health and general characteristics of cells grown ex vivo.

We are specifically working in developing this technology to monitor the de-differentiation, proliferation, differentiation and expansion of stem cells – addressing a critical need in this industry for quality assurance and quality control of their products. Our optoelectronic sensors will accelerate the development and commercialisation of human stem cells using “cell signatures” - optoelectronic data robustly associate with a particular cell state or cell fate.

Meeting the needs of cell-base companies to monitor their production in real-time
