In Greek Mythology, Hesperos is the name for the planet Venus in the evening sky, the "most splendid star in the heavens"….a unique name chosen for a company that celebrates the value of individuals.   

Since the 1990's our scientific team has led the effort to characterize individual's biology with body-on-a-chip systems. We have been at the forefront of every major scientific discovery in this realm which has spanned the fields of nano science, computational modeling, biomedical engineering, physiology, cell biology and surface chemistry.

 

Our Mission

We seek to revolutionize toxicology testing and release the creative ingenuity of industry.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand”.
— Albert Einstein

What We've Achieved so far

  • Pumpless body-on-a-chip platform which provides a low cost, low maintenance platform that is readily scalable.
  • Integrated computational modeling of live physiological responses within the chip environment.
  • Serum-free cellular medium which allows between-subject comparisons, thereby revealing individual differences in biology and responses to new compounds.
  • Physiological monitoring of functional brain, muscle, and neuronal-muscular junctions.
