Founded in 2002, Microvitae Technologies specializes in design, manufacturing and commercialization of innovative medical equipments for functional exploration based on flexible plastic micro-technologies.

Microvitae Technologies owns patented electrophysiological micro-electrode as well as know-how to develop electronic physiological signal acquisition.

A dedicated team of engineers is involved in advanced Bioelectronics research, Microvitae Technologies was winner ofat creation of French National Contest in Creation of Innovative Companies (CNCE OSEO / Department of Research) and winner of  Act'SANTE 2008, PACA contest.


Microvitae is also a member of the Competitive Clusters Eurobiomed and SCS.


Microvitae's Quality Management System is ISO 13485:2003 notified by French LNE / G-MED, and now the company markets a product of Auditory and Otolithic Evoked Potentials  under the label CE 0459 (LNE / G-MED) as well as electrophysiological electrodes


Microvitae won the 2014 World Innovation Challenge thanks to its projet

Thierry Herve


Engineer in Physics&Electronics, he gets a PhD in electronics in 1987 from INPG (National Polytechnique Institute of Grenoble-France) and then spends 2 years as Post-Doctor in NTT (Nippon Telegram & Telecom) in 1988-1990, Tokyo-Japan. From 1989 to 2002 he is researcher à INSERM (French National Institute for Health and Medical research) and obtains a HDR (Habilitation to Supervize Research) in  Medicine in 1999 at Grenoble Faculty of Medicine into which he creates and directs the Microsystems group from 1998 to 2002. Between 1990 and 2002 he conducts many national and international research programs, specially in Japan where he has spent, in total, more than 4 years in several stays (NTT, LIMMS, The University of Tokyo-Faculty of Medicine, the Tokyo Medical&Dental University-dept of neurophysiology & Department of BioEngineering). Winner of the French National Contest for Creation of Innovative companies (with the highest price of 450 k€) he quits his INSERM position  in 2002 and creates Microvitae Technologies.

Valéry Bouquet

Product Development Manager

After completing his microelectronics engineering degree at ISEN Toulon, Valéry worked at STMicroelectronics (Rousset) from 2003 to 2010, while obtaining his PhD in modeling non-volatile memories (FLASH) in collaboration with IN2MP (2010). He then particpated in conception and realisation of integrated memories circuits on chips ("smart-card" and microcontroller).

In 2010, he was in charge of electronics circuits conception and of software development to acquire neual data fron rodents at "Canadian Centre for Behavioral Neuroscience" (Canada, Lethbridge, Alberta) under the direction of Prof. Bruce LcNaughton. He developped devices (hyperdrives, tetrodes) allowing many in-vivo research projects with rodents (behaviour, electrophysiology).

At the end of 2013, Valery integrated Microvitae Technologies as Products Development Manager.

Pierre Leleux

R&D Engineer

Pierre received his Engineering degree in 2010 from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint Etienne (MicroElectronics and Computer Science specialized cycle). He then started a PhD founded by Microvitae in collaboration with the Department of Bioelectronics (BEL) of the Center of Microelectronics in Provence of the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint Etienne and the "epilepsy and cognition" INSERM unit 1106 of Aix-Marseille University. His work was focused on the conception of new biomedical devices based on conductive polymers to acquire physiologic signals. He supported his thesis in December, 2013, and is now working as Research engineer with Microvitae.

Thomas Lonjaret

R&D Engineer - PhD student

Thomas received his Engineer's Degree in 2013 from Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne ( specialization in microelectronics, computer sciences and new technologies). Reseach Engineer for Microvitae Tecnologies, he is doing his PhD with Microvitae and the Department of bioelectronics, Centre de Microelélectronique de Provence, Ecole des mines de Saint Etienne. He is currently working on conception, caracterization and integration of passive ans actives devices (electrodes, transistors,...) based on organic polymers for electrophysiologic applications.

Eloise Bihar

R&D Engineer - PhD student

Eloïse Bihar received her engineering degree from Grenoble INP-Pagora in 2010. She is specialized in printing and biomaterials. Since 2011, she has been a research engineer in the flexible electronics department at the Centre of Microelectronics in Provence of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint Etienne working on the development of inkjet processes for microelectronics applications. She is currently a PhD student in the department of Bioelectronics (BEL) funded by a CIFRE fellowship with Microvitae.  Her current research focuses on the fabrication of printed electrodes for medical devices using biocompatible substrates and conducting polymers.
