Enabling success in translational research

AYOXXA Biosystems GmbH is a venture-backed life science tools company driving advances that empower translational proteomics, setting sights on better diagnostics and therapeutics. Presently entering the commercial phase of growth, our company is an international and multidisciplinary team of scientists, technicians, engineers and business professionals working relentlessly to realize our vision of enabling success in translational proteomics.

Together, we have transformed an innovative technology exclusively licensed from the National University of Singapore in 2010, into a mature, groundbreaking protein analysis platform. Designed to deliver high-quality data on multiple proteins in the same small-volume sample, LUNARIS™ enables fully scalable quantitative validation of disease-relevant biomarkers: from lab to clinic – from model to man – from data to insight.

The Right Team to Fuel Breakthroughs

AYOXXA Biosystems GmbH, originally a Startup of the National University of Singapore, is an international life science company headquartered in Cologne (Germany) with commercial operations in the USA.

We are a young and energetic company, guided by an experienced leadership, and determined to create research tools that boost translational research. Beyond facilitating discoveries in the lab, our LUNARIS™ Technology is the optimal analysis platform for the pre-clinical and clinical development work that transforms those discoveries into novel diagnostics and therapies.
