Our History

Founded in 2019 with the ambitious goal of revolutionizing biological research and enhancing human health through spatial genomics, we have swiftly emerged as a leader in the field. By developing and commercializing the MERFISH technology, an advanced method licensed exclusively from Harvard University, we have enabled precise molecular and cellular mapping within biological systems, preserving vital spatial relationships critical for understanding tissue organization in health and disease. In just a few years, we have assembled a global team of over 150 experts and earned prestigious accolades, including the 2022 BioTech Breakthrough Award for Overall Biotech Company of the Year.

Our Facilities

Our facilities reflect Vizgen’s commitment to innovation and excellence in the field of spatial genomics. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and designed to foster collaboration, our spaces are the breeding ground for groundbreaking research and development. Here, our dedicated team works in an environment that not only champions advanced scientific exploration but also promotes a culture of shared knowledge and discovery.


Using MERFISH technology, researchers at the Allen Institute were able to gather cellular-resolution spatial transcriptomic data that advanced us significantly closer toward our goal of creating a taxonomy of cell types and a description of their connectivity within brain circuits – laying the groundwork to one day understanding how brain circuits function. In the hands of the research community, I believe that MERSCOPE will be a powerful tool for standardizing the way we characterize different cell types, not just in the brain, but also in the rest of the body, ultimately bringing a deeper level of understanding to all life science research .”
