Nicoya wanted to commercialize their ‘research’ instrument into a personal benchtop SPR platform. The vision was to improve the form factor and simplify the researcher’s workflow steps so they can focus on implementing their passion and purpose. Nicoya’s founder, also a scientist, wanted to connect with users on a technical and emotional level by providing an instrument that reflects positivity, inspiration, drive. He wanted the product aesthetic and user experience to match the quality of their revolutionary nano technology.
Nicoya Alto users are lab researchers working to better understand diseases and discover drugs to improve lives. They are analytical and focused on the highly technical details of their research.
