The Surfix team has its roots in the surface modification technologies based on organic chemistry. Surfix was founded as a spin-off from the department of Organic Chemistry of Wageningen University & Research.

Over the years, we have continually added complementary expertise to our organisation, like biosensing, microfluidics and (system-)engineering. With all this knowledge in-house, we can now proudly state: "we are Surfix Diagnostics"!
