LiveAssay is a privately owned company based in Baltimore, MD near the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus. LiveAssay has its key assets in its expertise in creating micro- and nanofabricated platforms for fixed and live cell microscopy experiments. LiveAssay was started by two scientists from the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions who have had extensive experience in cell biology, developmental biology, and in micro- and nanotechnology.

LiveAssay also consults with various scientists across the United States to develop new products that provide novel precise, standardized, and useful platforms for conventional biology laboratories.

LiveAssay’s technologies and expertise are applied in the following main areas:

  • Development of specialized assays for cell microscopy solutions

  • Standardizing conventional live-cell microscopy based assays in easy to use platforms

  • Manufacturing and marketing inexpensive and high quality platforms to live cell microscopy experiments. 

LiveAssay has a  fully owned subsidiary in collaboration with Central Institutes of Plastics Engineering & Technology, Jaipur, India and invests extensively in research and development in collaboration with cell biology investigators to develop novel tools to make cell biology experiments easier and more standardized.
