microVita is a spin-out based in Southampton, UK. We aim to support the pharmaceutical industry in the development of new drugs. Our technology is based on magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Using live tissue slices, it can provide detailed information on how drugs affect biological processes.



Magnetic resonance uses radio waves to follow chemical reactions in live tissue. Unlike other types of electromagnetic radiation, they do not interfere with the biological processes.


microVita technology is based on recent results from a EU Future and Emerging Technology research project.

Proven sensitivity

The technology can observe 20+ different compounds in live tissue slices, thus giving a detailed picture of the
