Everything you need to know about LUMICKS


LUMICKS is a recent spin-off, rooted in the research groups of Prof. Gijs Wuite and Prof. Erwin Peterman at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, bringing to market the revolutionary C-Trap™ and AFS™ systems. These instruments enable the disruptive techniques of live measurement and imaging of interactions at the single-molecule level.


Understanding the most complex biological processes at the single-molecule level is key for the prevention and cure of cancer and other diseases. Live observation and measurement at the molecular level is game changing, and LUMICKS aims to make these enabling technologies available to biologists to create a better world.

Environmental Policy

LUMICKS is committed to preserve the environment for the generations that follow. While our systems are designed to put ultimate performance in the hands of our customers, we aim to minimise our environmental footprint in doing so. Reducing energy consumption is part of our design process, and we constantly work with our suppliers on such improvements. Our employees fly CO2 neutral, and we transport our systems in re-usable crates.
