SEMARION - Molecular Fingerprint Analysis Solutions for Drug Development

Drug Discovery.png

Semarion is developing protein fingerprint analysis solutions to enable paradigm shifts in the drug development process, specifically, patient stratification during clinical trials.


There is a wealth of complex data within biological tissue. Every cell, organ, and body, contain molecular fingerprints full of hidden information.


Semarion is tapping into that potential. Our technology platform has the potential to quantify 1,000s of biomarkers simultaneously, in an accurate, affordable, and automated way.

Using scalable microchip-based manufacturing, Semarion creates tiny, suspended, mobile biosensors that address the high costs, limited multiplexing capabilities, and reliability challenges of current state of the art multiplex assays.

These suspended biosensors are based on novel, patented magnetic microparticles that Semarion developed.

These particles feature:
(1) Optimized surface chemistry for high specificity
(2) Robust barcoding for massive multiplexing
(3) Increased limit of detection for maximum sensitivity

Semarion is a spin-out company from the Cavendish Laboratories at Cambridge University.
