Phitonex, Inc. is the guiding light that enables illumination of the unknown. Our mission is to accelerate discovery in the life sciences to help find cures for disease, improve chronic illness, and eliminate suffering. To make these life-changing impacts, we have developed the Phiton™ platform, which enables the deterministic optical engineering of fluorescent labels to provide cleaner, higher-dimensional analysis of single cells. Our current product lines, NovaBlue and NovaYellow fluorescent labels, enable multiplexed detection using previously incompatible laser lines, and our follow-on products, InfiniFluors™, drastically expand the number of colors available for cellular marker detection. Across the board, Phitonex products allow scientists to capture more information from their critical cell samples, wasting less material while learning more. 


We are hiring: Analytical Chemists

The Phitonex lab is located in the Chesterfield building, a converted historic tobacco warehouse renovated in 2017 to house a variety of life science and technology companies. Our facility provides a diverse and inclusive work environment that enables us to push the boundaries of technology for the life sciences.
