Dutch Life Sciences and Health Industry Offers Gateway to European Market for LumaCyte
Biotech company establishes in the Netherlands to meet growing demand in European biopharma market
US-based LumaCyte is expanding to the Dutch life sciences and health industry to meet rising demand in the European biopharma market. The biotech company, which specializes in advanced bioanalytics instrumentation, has experienced a rapid increase in global demand for Radiance®, its label-free single cell analysis instrument.
With a large portion of that demand coming from Europe, LumaCyte chose the Netherlands for its expansion to the European market. Home to a unique cluster of life sciences and health companies, world-class research institutes and high-quality infrastructure, the Netherlands is on the leading edge of life sciences innovation in Europe.
“European biopharma and contract development & manufacturing organization (CDMO) scientists often ask if we have representation in the region as they search for innovative tools to alleviate their production and quality control bottlenecks,” said Dr. Sean Hart, LumaCyte CEO. “We can now finally say yes to this important question,” Hart noted.
By expanding to the Netherlands, LumaCyte joins a growing number of global companies that have found success in the Dutch life sciences and health industry. These include pharmaceutical company MSD, medical technology company Medtronic and many others.
Scientific Expertise and Exceptional Customer Service
With European researchers and scientists forming the biotech company’s customer base, LumaCyte needs qualified professionals who exhibit both scientific expertise and multilingual proficiency.

Built on the strength of the Netherlands’ R&D innovation ecosystem, the Dutch life sciences and health industry provides the ideal environment for LumaCyte to thrive in the European biopharma market.
