Our main purpose is to do Space Biotech for a Better Life. As we are following our vision for a bright future for human health on earth and beyond. By engineering End-to-End solutions to provide biotech products formed in space. Our own hardware enables state-of the art microgravity research also in a post ISS world.

Furthermore, we are offering a one-stop-shop for any service in microgravity, we not only enable research in microgravity but also make it accessible to any industry. We enable efficient life science research in microgravity - on the space stations, rockets and parabolic flights.

We offer an end-to-end service to take life science experiments, e.g. cell culturing or protein crystallization to microgravity - mostly to the ISS, but also on suborbital rockets or parabolic flights. Our modular and reusable hardware system makes it possible to offer ISS experiments in less than 6 months and less than € 100.000 instead of taking several years of preparation and costing 1 million euros.


We develop fully automated micro-labs with the size of a wallet and launch them on behalf of scientists around the world to the International Space Station (ISS), on orbital and suborbital spacecraft, on parabolic flights, and on drop towers. Additionally, we have the so called ScienceTaxi under development, a space incubator which is going to have its maiden flight in 2024 and can host up to 36 experiments.
