LUMICKS brings novel tools for single-molecule biophysics and cell avidity to market, enabling scientific researchers across biology and medicine to unlock new types of experiments. Our high-performance instruments are optimal to investigate the fundamental causes of disease and facilitate drug optimization. With the z-Movi® Cell Avidity Analyzer, researchers can directly measure the overall strength of intercellular interactions, known as cell avidity, between cells.  This new technology, which uses acoustic waves to separate cells, improves the investigation of previously unexplored avenues in basic and translational research. It offers a crucial parameter that highlights key immunotherapeutic properties, e.g., antigen presentation, antibody binding, vaccination, immunological synapses, and cell adhesion.

We offer you the chance to be part of an important mission: To improve human health by unlocking dynamic single-molecule and cell avidity analysis. With the ever-increasing adoption of our technologies by leading institutes from all over the world, including Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, Tsinghua University, NIH, and Imperial College London, LUMICKS is expanding its team.
