Who are we?


Our vision: We are convinced that the Convergence of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Cognitive Sciences, and Informatics will revolutionize the 21st century and our conception of human health, leading to major civilizational choices. To be at the forefront, it is fundamental to master new technologies.


Our mission: to be at the forefront, our mission is to develop the most advanced technological platform for predicting the impact of molecules (drug, endocrine perturbators, cosmetic, etc.) on the human body to better treat pathologies (orphan diseases, cancer, bacterial resistance, virus pandemic). Moreover, this platform is an alternative to ineffective animal models by combining new microfluidic technology, artificial intelligence, and the most advanced imaging techniques.


Our context today: As deep tech entrepreneurs, we choose the entrepreneurial path instead of the academic one. We are a team of risk-takers and we need to do more with less. We are now at an early stage of development of our company before product-market fit. CubiX, our main product, is in a pre sales phase. We are also involved in many national and international collaborative scientific projects which allow us to keep ahead of our competitors, to test our devices with top-notch scientific support and to further explore new potential innovations to integrate into our current and future products.


Our Team: To face all the challenges of our mission, we have built a united and hardworking group. We are a multidisciplinary team of 15 people with 7 Nationalities passionate about our missions, helping each other, and adapting to all situations.


Our culture: To succeed in our mission, we have also built a strong culture based on 3 major axes which combine:

A sense of humor :)
The search for efficiency
Cooperation within the team
