Lyncée Tec is making the invisible visible enabling you to characterize your samples like you couldn’t before!

Lyncée Tec is an innovative, dynamic and customer focused company based in Lausanne, Switzerland with a worldwide network of distributors. It offers matured holographic microscopes based on the revolutionary patented Digital Holographic Microscope (DHM®) technology. Additionally of having a standard product portfolio, Lyncée Tec has expert competences for customizing system to specific needs, and supplies OEM solutions.

To maintain a superior position in the field of technology and innovation, close collaboration exists with competence centers at universities and in particular with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland.

The proximity of the EPFL is a great advantage for a high-tech company such as Lyncée Tec, since it provides a wide range of know-how and expertise, resulting in numerous patents held by or licensed to Lyncée Tec. A highly qualified multidisciplinary team of more than 20 physicists, biologists and engineers specialized in optics, software, mechanics, and in micro- and nano-technology applications, ensures the presence of the requisite skills in terms of advice and technical execution, including development, manufacturing, assembling, quality assurance, sales and support.

Our History

  • After 10 years of technology development at the Microvision and Microdiagnostics group (MVD) and the Laboratory of Neuroenergetics and Cellular Dynamics (LNDC) of the EPFL, and numerous awards for its innovation, the company started to market DHM instruments in 2003.
  • The office was installed in the Innovation Park (PSE) on the site of the EPFL. It offers a unique location in the region of Lake Léman with numerous specialized sub-contractors manufacturers in the field of microtechnologies. Lyncée Tec belongs to the Micronarc and Bioalp clusters.
  • The company has been granted several industry awards: Lausanne Région Entreprendre , CTI start-up Label in 2003, WA De Vigier and Venture in 2004, and Swiss Technology Award in 2006.
  • In 2006, the company started its international expansion, today with worldwide presence of distributors.
