About Us

At Humane Technologies we design, develop, manufacture, and sell innovative and experiment-specific measurement devices, along with associated data collection platforms, for the biotechnology and life sciences research. By developing devices using innovative manufacturing methods, and IoT and other communication technologies, we make experimentation and data collection easier and more reproducible, and enable novel, quantitative training programs. Our customers include researchers in academia and industry, teachers and students in higher and primary education institutions, and ‘citizen scientists’.

Humane Technologies was co-founded by Prof. Orkun S. Soyer and Dr. Kalesh Sasidharan, colleagues who started working together at the Soyer-led research group at the University of Warwick in 2013. From 2015 onwards, the idea of a company started to develop from lunch-break conversations, which combined Soyer’s interest in ‘making measurements easier and more reproducible’ and Sasidharan’s interest (nurtured since childhood) in electronics and device design. The first product of Humane Technologies, a microbial growth measurement device, born out of their own experience in the laboratory of dealing with anaerobic cultures and recording high-resolution growth data. They continue developing experiment-specific, innovative and user-friendly measurement devices.
