Better, faster biological research and development through automation

Spun out of the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore, Curiox brings together decades of scientific and engineering expertise in surface chemistry and life science instrumentation with the goal of overcoming critical challenges that slow the pace of life science research.

By focusing on common assay steps where miniaturization and automation are currently underutilized, we’ve developed innovative technologies that simultaneously improve both productivity and data quality.

We look forward to ushering in the next generation of innovations that accelerate the pace of life science research, diagnostics, and therapeutics discovery and development.

OUR HISTORY

Curiox was founded in 2008 to commercialize DropArray™ technology, which was initially developed by Namyong Kim, PhD and his group at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), a part of A*STAR. The venture was backed by Nanostart AG and Exploit Technologies, the commercialization arm of A*STAR.

In 2010, we received a large corporate investment from the Zicom Group, a Singaporean/ Australian conglomerate listed on the Australian Stock Exchange, that greatly accelerated our product development timeline and enabled expansion into global markets.

More recently, we introduced our Laminar Wash™ technology, which automates cell processing and enables highly reproducible and high-throughput cell analysis. This technology has seen strong adoption and sales globally, and we continue to improve and expand this product offering.

In 2019, we completed a Series B round of funding, raising US $15M from a consortium of venture capital organizations including KB Investments, IMM Investments, Quad Investments, HB Investments, DayLI Investments, and SV Investments in Korea.
