Short Description

4Dcell offers technologies and microfluidic solutions for cellular microenvironment control. Those are the result of years of study by qualified and prestigious laboratories dedicated to cell biology and microfluidics.

Redefining cell culture, the aim is to build most up-to-date tools for cell culture, available to all. 4Dcell products are adapted to specific needs, simple to use, accessible without prior expertise, and cost effective. 4Dcell deep knowledge of both cell biology, biophysics and microfabrication techniques and our close collaboration with the best labs in the field made it possible.
