Careers

We're growing. Be a part of it.

 

LUMICKS is coming to market as the supplier of instruments for single-molecule research; a rapidly evolving niche in the fundamental biology research field. Our high-performance and easy-to-use C-Trap™ and AFS™ systems allow for the visualization of DNA-protein interactions at the single molecule level in real time. Enabling biologists to understand complex biological processes at the single-molecule level is key for the prevention and potential cure of many diseases.

We’re a small academic spin-off from a fundamental research group at VU University Amsterdam. Having successfully made the first sales to opinion-leading labs such as Harvard, Berkeley, Max-Planck, Rockefeller University, and ShanghaiTech, LUMICKS is now expanding its team.
