Improve drug discovery and toxicological assays

4Dcell philosophy is based on the conviction that the future of cell biology will rely on 2D and 3D cell culture technologies coming from the confluence of microfabrication, biophysics, chemistry and innovative biological knowledge.

4Dcell ambition is to promote a simple access to advanced biophysical technologies in order to make in vitro models more predictible.

4Dcell provides hardware solutions. Pharmaceuticals, CROs, cell providers and academics bring the cell model, 4Dcell develops the adapted device to reproduce the natural cell constraints.

That is why 4DCell team supports your experimental set up by providing our know-how, expertise and technical capabilities.
