Founded in September 2016 as an ETH Zurich spin-off, MaxWell Biosystems is a technology leader providing instrumentation and solutions to boost scientific research and development in neurosciences, stem cell and tissue engineering, ophthalmology, and other fields involving electrogenic cells.

MaxOne (single-well) and MaxTwo (multi-well) are easy-to-use systems that equip scientists with the ability to record electrical signals of neurons in in-vitro 2D and 3D models at network, cellular, and subcellular levels.

MaxWell Biosystems’ main goal is to be a trusted partner to all users and collaborators, for a greater cause, of advancing scientific breakthroughs and for achieving faster and more effective drug discovery, through our products, solutions, and expertise
MaxOne and MaxTwo,
the most powerful electrophysiology platforms for recording and stimulating electrogenic cells in-vitro

MaxOne is a CMOS-based high-density microelectrode array (HD-MEA) system. This enables compact yet powerful amplifiers, filters, and digitizers to be integrated within the MEA well - close to the cells under study.

With the MaxOne and MaxTwo, each cell on each MEA well can be accessed by multiple electrodes for recording and stimulation. MaxOne enables long term monitoring of the activity of single cells, its axons, and the dynamics of the entire network that it forms with other cells.
