HexagonFab is a biotechnology startup (founded in 2018) accelerating drug research and manufacturing with portable on-site biomolecule analysis tools. We have developed biological sensors based on graphene-technology for rapid and highly sensitive detection of biomolecules like proteins, DNA, or small molecules, with portable and affordable readers. Additionally, our technology allows precise kinetics measurement of intermolecular interactions, such as antibody-ligand binding.
Our mission is to simplify the analysis of proteins & small molecules for pharma research and manufacturing. Current protein analysis instruments predominantly use optical technology and thus require sophisticated and bulky equipment that leads to high running costs and maintenance schedules. Our approach is based on an all-electric detection of molecules which enables a significantly simpler and 20x more affordable sensor and a reader device. HexagonFab headquarters are based in Cambridge (United Kingdom), but it also has operations in Zürich (Switzerland).
