HexagonFab is a new biotechnology start-up founded in 2018. Their goal is to accelerate drug research and manufacturing by using portable biomolecule analysis tools on-site.
HexagonFab is currently working on developing a flexible and automated benchtop protein assay instrument that can analyse proteins at the point of use. Unlike traditional protein analysis instruments that rely on optical technology, their approach is based on the electric detection of molecules. This allows them to create a much simpler and 20 times more affordable sensor and reader device, which translates into lower running costs and maintenance schedules. The application focus is on antibody quantification in biological samples and biomarker detection.
HexagonFab is headquartered in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
