We are scientists, working for scientists.
Our belief is that each and every Biologist, Researcher and Physician should be able to explore and interact instantly with living cells without damaging them.
We want to support the study of how living cells and bacteria work, evolve and react, thus building a solid base for new drugs and therapies, in order to enable breakthrough researches.
This is the reason why we have developed the 3D Cell Explorer.
Nanolive SA was incorporated in November 2013 at the EPFL Innovation Park in Lausanne, Switzerland, by Dr. Yann Cotte (CEO) and Dr. Fatih Toy (scientific advisor), following the completion of their respective PhD theses at the EPFL Microsystems laboratory of Prof. Christian Depeursinge (Head of Scientific Advisory Board).
Late 2013, Dr. Andreas Kern and Dr. Sebastien Equis joined as Co-Founders to lead the software development and hardware construction respectively.
Now the team is composed of more than 20 people from very different backgrounds and geographical origins: engineers, biologists, physicists and business.
Living Cell Tomography
Our 3D Cell Explorer delivers living cell tomography. Just as you may know from a MRI in hospitals, our light microscope uses laser light to deliver live scans of single cells. After placing the cellular specimen in the device, the 3D Cell Explorer performs a continuous rotational scan, while a software allows to display the cell on your computer in 3D within a second.
