Building WAVEs by the lake

Our company

We lead the advancement of breakthroughs in life science research

Creoptix AG

Creoptix is a private company headquartered in Wädenswil, at the foot of the lake of Zurich in Switzerland, and with US offices in the Boston area.

Our mission

We enable life scientists to accelerate discovery by providing cutting-edge tools for molecular interaction analysis. Creoptix focuses on next-generation bioanalytical instruments for drug discovery and life sciences for both industry and academic research. Based on its proprietary biosensor, microfluidics and software technologies, the Creoptix WAVEsystem provides exceptionally high sensitivity and resolution to study real-time biological interactions involving fragment, small molecules, peptides, membrane proteins, biologics and other molecules even in crude reaction mixtures and biofluids like undiluted serum and plasma.

Explore the Creoptix® WAVEsystem

  • Measure interactions, not interference


    Engineered around a proprietary Grating-Coupled Interferometry (GCI) technology, the Creoptix® WAVE system builds on waveguide interferometry to achieve superior resolution in signal and time. With low limits of detection, the WAVEsystem generates accurate kinetic rates, affinity constants, and concentrations of label-free biomolecular interactions, even at low analyte abundance, with no loss of definition.

What's behind the Creoptix® WAVEsystem?

  • It's how we see light

    Grating-Coupled Interferometry

    A distinguishing advantage of the WAVE is the patented Grating Coupled Interferometry (GCI) design. GCI is based on waveguide interferometry to determine kinetics, affinity, and concentrations of the interacting molecules.
