Unlocking a new dimension in cellular analysis.

Levitas Bio is advancing science and human health by providing researchers with a new and powerful method of cellular analysis. Equipped with our proprietary Magnetic Levitation Technology, our devices leverage the power of levitation to accurately and gently detect, quantify, separate and test cells. Our method is label-free and delivers an unbiased method to detect cell type and state with minimal time and handing. Demonstrations of the patent-protected technology have been published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Advanced Materials, and Small. In our current phase, we are exploring potential applications of our technology with a diverse group of partners including CZ Biohub, Stanford University, and others. If you would like to explore a new potential application, please get in touch.
