Dispensing Pioneer

Polypico was created as a spinout company from the University of Limerick, Ireland, after a series of scientific breakthroughs, led by our co-founder Gabriel Leen. Launching our first range in 2015, within a few years the solution was being used by some of the world’s leading scientists at NASA; Imperial College London; Massachusetts General Hospital; the US National Institutive of Standards and Technology; the Korean Research Institute of Standards and Science; the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission; European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser Facility and many more. Now one of the world’s leading microdispensing specialists, we continue to invest heavily in R&D, discovering new innovations in liquid handling, with sustained breakthroughs in areas such as contactless biology including levitating microdrops in free space; mixing and transporting microdrops in free space; and printing 2D patterns of microdrops with no moving parts.
