About Us

CellSight Technologies is a privately held biotechnology company based in San Francisco, California.

CellSight is enabling cell and gene therapies in living subjects through the use of imaging technologies. We offer custom imaging research services as well as prepackaged molecular imaging kits targeted at companies with imaging expertise as well as academic institutions. We have formed partnerships with large pharmaceutical companies to incorporate imaging studies during cell therapy & drug development.

The technology that forms the basis for the company was developed by Dr. Sanjiv Gambhir's group at the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford (MIPS) and has been demonstrated in pre-clinical and clinical studies.
