Based in Provence, Biophy Research was founded in 1993 by researchers specialised in surface science in order to offer a service of physical chemistry analysis aiming industries.

In 20 years, Biophy Research has developed a recognised expertise worldwide in the field of physical chemistry of surfaces and interfaces and has set up a an advanced analytical park allowing a large range of chemical and structural analysis of surfaces and interfaces of materials.

Specialised in high technology, Biophy Research assure you a perfect control of phenomenons on the surface of your materials in order to optimise your products performance and increase your competitivity.

Entirely in tune with you, Biophy Research is your privileged partner in design, development, validation and industrialisation of your new materials and processes  in surface treatment.
