Photoswitch Biosciences is creating next generation instrumentation for use in the early stages of drug discovery and basic cell biology research. The need for a fluorescent plate reader capable of high speed acquisition and light-activation was born from internal research on the therapeutic applications of designed-for-purpose, light-activated ion channels (‘photoswitches’). The therapeutic mission of the company has been separated out so that Photoswitch Biosciences is solely focused on bringing advanced instrumentation to the market for the research community.
Our mission is to provide best-in-class instrumentation to the industrial and academic research communities. Founded by scientists familiar with need for reliable instrumentation and advanced software, the user experience is at the core of our design.
