Accelerating scientific discovery

We’re reimagining the laboratory

At Sharp Life Science (EU) Limited, we are dedicated to delivering workflow automation solutions that revolutionise how life sciences research is carried out.


Since the inception of aQdrop as a research project in 2009, our team have been committed to using their expertise in microelectronics and precision manufacturing to reimagine the modern laboratory. Our goal is to provide a powerful solution to automate time-consuming tasks and empower researchers to tackle more complex scientific challenges.


The company was formed in 2017 as a spin-out from Sharp Laboratories of Europe to further develop the aQdrop technology. Sharp Life Sciences (EU) Limited is a subsidiary of Sharp FMSG Life Science Company, a joint venture between Sharp Corporation and Hon Hai Precision Industry Company Limited (also known by its trade name Foxconn).


We are based on the Oxford Science Park in Oxford, UK, with an interdisciplinary team working across hardware, software and wetware in the life sciences.
