Meeting your bioinformatics needs
From one-off services to long-term collaborative support

As a leading independent scientific foundation specialized in life science data, we provide sound, objective and results-oriented professional services and solutions to academics, clinical and industry partners in Switzerland and abroad. More about our 360° approach

We assist you at all stages of discovery

Our experience spans the discovery steps following the generation of data, from R&D to applications. We a leverage our national network of over 80 research and service groups to complement our core strengths and connect you with the right experts.

We make sense of life science data

We are data science experts, software developers, biocurators and computational biologists. We all share the same passion for data and the latest associated technologies. We believe that good data science needs a strong understanding of the nature of the data and the processes behind. The biological and biomedical data we regularly handle include:

  1. Clinical (collected in routine, from clinical trials or cohorts)
  2. Mass cytometry (CyTOF)
  3. Mass spectrometry
  4. Molecular imaging
  5. Multiomics and spatial analyses: genomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, microbiomics
  6. Nanostring and protein arrays
  7. Single-cell and bulk RNAseq, TCRseq, CITEseq, ChIPseq, ATACseq
  8. Text

and more.

We help bringing innovation and health forward with a service offering across sectors

We have over 20 years of experience in successfully delivering data science services to the academic and private sector, from collaborating in large European public-private partnerships to engaging in contracts or Innosuisse schemes with biotech/biomed start-ups, SMEs, pharma companies and hospitals. The applications of our work span oncology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, diabetes, obesity, cancer, arthritis, aging and more.
