Vision and Mission

Impetux offers optical tweezers instrumentation based on a worldwide patented technology and  specially developed to decode, analyze and quantify tissue and cell mechanics. We know that cells interact with its surroundings through physical forces. The latest advances in Mechanobiology suggest that changes in cell mechanics can explain a wide range of fundamental biological processes such as embryonic development, tumour growth and wound healing. Our vision is to revolutionize the research in these fields with a novel approach and empower the generation of knowledge that leads to the development of new diagnosis and treatment methods for a wide range of diseases.

Values

The set of core values that walks us towards our challenges and describe our way of working and interact with our environment is basically based on confidence, respect, humility, responsibility and coherence in everything we do.

Confidence in our collaborators and our capabilities to face the challenges, respect for everyone and the environment, responsibility in front of our commitments, maximum consistency between what we say and what we do as individuals and as an organization too, and of course, committed and innovative in covering our customers needs.
