in motion

If human beings are in constant motion,
why research with rigid glass plates?

What is it?

FlexiDish is an innovative device for basic research in health and biology

What does it do?

It allows the study of cells by simulating the movement of the tissues of living beings, thus reducing animal experimentation.

How does it work?

The researcher can grow cells on a membrane that stretches cyclically to simulate the movement of the lung, muscle or heart, unlike the traditional rigid Petri dish.

What is its advantage?

Its design is focused on user experience and scientific accuracy.


We want to turn FlexiDish into an indispensable instrument at a global level, so that this technology goes beyond specialized laboratories and with high resources.
