To date, BioServe has designed, manufactured, and operated hundreds of science payloads on over 70 spaceflight missions. Our payloads have flown on six different types of spacecraft (Shuttle, Progress, Soyuz, HTV, Dragon, and Cygnus) and two space stations (Mir and ISS). We are continually developing new space life science research and designing new or updating existing hardware to support that research.  This keeps BioServe on the forefront of space life science research.
