HCS Pharma is a biotechnological start-up focused on in vitro preclinical research & development with a specialization in cellular imaging: High Content Analysis (HCA) and High Content Screening (HCS).

This multi-parametric imaging system allows you to gain time and money by following several parameters within the same experiment. We can perform proof of concept / mechanism of action assays, assay development and primary or secondary screenings for you.

We develop also our own models that we offer for services in different fields (Toxicology, Pharmacology, Dermocosmetic), our own compounds libraries (Prestwick, ENZO, ELF…), and our own innovative and exclusive 3D technology BIOMIMESYS® biofunctionalized scaffold for innovative phenotypic screening model.

We are located on 2 sites (Lille and Rennes) with 2 distinct specialities: human health in Lille and nutrition & wellness (Cosmetology and Nutracetics) in Rennes.

To help you visualize what an automation platform is, we are happy to share with you a short immersive video “inside” HAPIx ! If you want to experiment it, please use a Google cardboard or something similar:

In Rennes, we own one cell culture lab, one imaging lab with one HCS system (ImageXpress micro XLS from Molecular Devices) and one automation lab with a pipetting system in stand alone.
