Are you interested in working in a young company that brings together high-tech engineering and complex cell culture models for drug safety and efficacy testing? Do you enjoy working on unique projects for customers or internal R&D? Then we would like to get in touch with you.

Sync Biosystems was founded in 2022 with the aim to bring Microphysiological Systems to real-world applications. We strongly believe that with high tech engineering we can improve current in vitro assays and make drug testing and disease modelling easier and more reliable. We create a bridge between in vitro biology, microfluidics and mechatronics by introducing precise control, (pharma)kinetics, and automation to existing assays without increasing the complexity of cell culture protocols.
