Revolutionizing single-cell analysis
We simplify and automate single-cell manipulation
We are Lucero
Our mission is to automate and simplify single-cell manipulation to help the global healthcare industry transition toward personalized medicine.
The future of healthcare is shifting toward personalized treatment. In order for the industry to reach that goal, scientists need to understand how complex diseases differ at the single-cell level.
Once scientists understand how heterogeneous single-cells behave in a population, it will have a profound impact on disease research, pharmaceutical drug development, and patient treatment.
Lucero is creating a user-friendly research tool that builds upon deep research in optics, microfluidics, and AI to be used by biologists who study individual cells.
The future of single-cell analysis
Our first application and pilot project is focused in the research area of AGING Within aging, we can help biologists to better understand aging pathways that could lead to increased human longevity and health. In addition to aging, we believe that these are the fields where we can have the biggest societal impact:
Helping forensic DNA analysts extract cells from evidence samples to obtain better quality DNA profiles more quickly, which could expedite the judicial process.
Aiding researchers create the next generation of immunotherapies by allowing them to properly handle delicate and rare white blood cells.
Allowing virologists to better understand virus-host interactions which could lead to the development of new, personalized vaccines for viruses such as COVID-19.
