A Unique Materials Platform for a Paradigm Shift in Cell Screening
What We Do
Turning Adherent Cells into Reagents
Our SemaCyte® assaying microcarriers function as ultra-miniaturized wells suspended in liquid. These flat substrates carry small colonies of adherent cells and are magnetically steerable.
Seamless Integration for Better and Faster Data
We introduce assay flexibility, miniaturisation, and multiplexing to drive 10x gains in drug screening. The SemaCyte® platform integrates with exisiting workflows and enables novel assaying formats.
Who We Are
Interfacing microchip-inspired hardware with the complex world of cell biology
Semarion leverages microfabrication technology to build smart materials and develop novel cell assaying applications for unmet screening needs.

Pine Trees Dancing to the Rhythm of Magnets
We made SemaCyte microcarriers in the shape of pine trees and loaded them with A549 lung carcinoma cells. After their release, we moved them around with an external magnetic field and dispensed them for an IC50 dose resp...Read More
