We believe innovative biotechnology has enabled massive leaps forward in understanding the composition of tissues and organs. However, the functional understanding of how cells communicate in their native context and form these complex systems has just begun. We develop technology that is designed to uncover radical new insights into the cellular level of human biology—by mapping the communication between cells in human tissue and providing meaningful data.
