Who are we?

Biotechnology company

Specialist in the design of biological automatons.


Flogentec is a biotechnology company, based in Valence, France and specialized in the design of biological automatons. This company was founded in 2008, following a meeting between an industrialist (Anthemis Technologies) and a biologist researcher at the CNRS in Grenoble.
Flogentec has merged with Anthemis Technologies since January 2017, with the aim of consolidating the activities jointly.
Flo400 - Automate de Biologie haute performance - Flogentec

This project was initially developed in response to an urgent need for research on the biology of embryonic development. However, the functions of most of these genes are not yet known and require extensive research using complex laboratory techniques.

The biotechnology company, Flogentec based in Valence has followed this research and has become, thanks to the Flo 400, a leading company in the development, manufacture and distribution of devices for the automation of complex protocols in biochemistry, molecular biology, and experimental biology.

Several years of experience must have been necessary for Flogentec’s team, composed of engineers, biologists and scientists, to develop this method. This has made it possible to guarantee a high level of expertise in the automation of high throughput biology techniques, such as in situ hybridization.

From these years of Research and Development, Flo400 was created in 2008. It is a small laboratory automaton performing in situ hybridization and immunocytometry techniques on 3D biological samples. It will process 40 large biological samples per experiment, using 4 different RNA probes.

In brief

FLO-400 Information

FLO-400 is an essential laboratory device for 3D in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry. It reduces the analysis time to 22 hours compared to 96 hours with a traditional tool.


4 different probes can be used simultaneously (1 per Flow Cell). Baskets can be placed in order to multiply the number of embryos to be analysed.


Recycling process: antibodies and RNA probes are recycled and can be much more diluted or reused for other experiments.

Constant flow

Constant flow of reagent: 3D biological samples are constantly subjected to a solvent flow that ensures good conditions in the experiment.


Easy-to-use laboratory software: an efficient and ergonomic software. This software allows you to program the analysis process and see the results.
