3Scan’s growing team of engineers, biologists and data-scientists is united by intellectual curiosity and the desire to further the progress of biology. The VCs of Silicon Valley call us “hot-pink-haired techno punks,” but we embrace all hair colors. We work hard, and we’re passionate about the potential our technology has to change the future of pathology.

Our labs and offices in the Mission District are in the center of San Francisco’s booming science and tech culture: we hold regular talks on topics ranging from histology to optics to polymer physics. 3Scan holds several patents across a variety of disciplines and has trademarked the term Squishware™.

3Scan’s science is multidisciplinary and results-driven. Our values apply to our work and lives. We encourage our team in their work inside and outside the company, whether they’re publishing articles, building art, or dreaming robots.
