MicroElectrodeDevices.com is dedicated to serving new clients as well as former clients of Qwane Biosciences SA, a Swiss company which ceased its operations in 2019 and closed in 2020.


The development and manufacture of Micro Electrode Arrays (MEA) devices or biochips began in the late 90s and it has become commercially available since 2001 through the company Ayanda Biosystems SA (2001-2011), Lausanne, Switzerland.

In 2005, we were the first company to introduce multi-well MEA biochips to the market, which today are mostly replaced by new commercial well-plate MEA products.

In 2011, the MEA business was transferred to a new spin-off company, Qwane Biosciences SA (2011-2020), Lausanne, Switzerland, where current products were optimized and new manufacturing technologies were added to our portfolio. MEA products were provided to Qwane Biosciences customers until the company had to scale down and eventually shut down.
