Mission statement

Correlia Biosystems creates proteomic tools to power data-driven biology. Our instruments offer microsample measurement abilities to open new data for applications such as small animal models and precision medicine. Correlia’s automated tools can measure proteins with unparalleled speed and efficiency. We enable researchers and clinicians to access proteomic information while reducing the cost and time to market for candidate therapeutics.

The Team

We are a growing team of scientists and engineers with diverse expertise in engineering, biology, physics, and software. We value innovation, focus, caring for others, and we’re working hard to expand the power of proteomics for data-driven biology.
