Breakthrough Technology

Slingshot Biosciences has developed a scalable platform to manufacture "synthetic cells" that match the optical, biochemical, and physical features of any cell, in a shelf-stable, non-biohazardous and convenient format.

With an extensive synthesis library, combinatorial chemistry, and high precision manufacturing, we offer cutting edge innovation in micro and nano particle applications.

The result is a first-of-its-kind product that allows for single-step instrument calibration, assay controls, and diagnosis without the burden of biological controls. Take your cell analysis, blood diagnosis, and cell therapy development pipelines to the next level while preserving valuable biospecimens.

Cutting Edge Features


Precise Controls

Synthetic cells that can match the scatter, fluorescence, and density of real cells. Achieve newfound accuracy in calibrating instruments, assays, and cellular engineering.


Accurate Autofluorescence

FlowCytes autofluorescence matches real cells, unlike latex/polystyrene. Open additional channels for your complex panels.


Pinpoint Tuning

Match the scatter of any cell type, even rare malignancies. Custom products can be developed in weeks versus years.


Multiplex Customization

FlowCytes can multiplex fluorophores, antibodies, proteins, and DNA/RNA. Our modular platform enables limitless possibilities.
