Research & Analysis servicesSpecialized in bio & AFM
Our offer is designed to provide unique and high-value information on scientific projects. A5 Science, as a young innovative company specialized in nanoscale research and development, offers a service dedicated to atomic force microscopy and the study of mechanobiology. Topographical observations and indentation measurements performed at the nanometer scale document the mechanisms of mechanotransduction of biological objects.
We offer a comprehensive scientific analysis, outsourced and independent, which begins with a discovery and exchange step to establish the problematics of your research project. We conduct the bibliographic and experimental studies required to develop unique and adapted protocols that aim to provide evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of your product or process. The observations and analyses carried out by atomic force microscopy are then performed in the laboratory by our team, and the data are also processed, formatted, and exploited according to the needs and presented in the form of a scientific report that details our protocols, the measured results, and our interpretations or recommendations.

Our French scientific partners
Research Laboratory :
- Laboratory of Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS-CNRS): In this Toulouse-based laboratory, research is conducted at the interface between Micro and Nanotechnologies, biology, biophysics, and medical applications. The objective of the engineering teams for life sciences is to develop innovative technologies for the study of bio-interfaces that allow for a better understanding of the organization of biomolecules and cells forming biological tissues.
- Synthelis: Thanks to its proprietary “Cell-Free” expression technology, this reference company produces all types of proteins of interest for applications in health, diagnosis, environment, and agri-food. Once produced, these proteins undergo various tests and controls to validate their activity and integrity. Our collaboration with Synthelis aims to establish new protocols that will complement and strengthen the quality control of protein structures at the nanometric scale.
