SENSIA is a technological leader company in the field of analytical instrumentation based on SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance), for life sciences laboratories and environmental measurements.

It was created from the technologies developed by the Group led by the ICN2 Group Leader Prof. Laura Lechuga, previously at the Biosensor Group within the National Microelectronics Centre (CNM) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Concluding research results and availability of biosensing systems already working at lab level originated the proposal of bringing a small portable device into commercialization.

After MONDRAGON entered in 2007 the company evolved to launch a new Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) device for laboratory use. The new technology brought rupture into conventional SPR technologies, with a versatile machine enabling both gold biosensing and graphene biosensing, reaching unattained sensitivities in the SPR world.
