Sensors and Measuring Systems

"Enabling Science with cutting edge engineering"

Our team of talented ZHAW engineers and scientists has been applying for more than 10 years well-established and emerging measurement methods to relevant medical and biological problems. We collaborate with startups, international companies as well as leading academic partners and bring our engineering expertise to projects requiring state-of-the-art technical development.

We have been dedicated to creating impact by cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and thinking beyond academic publishing, focusing on technology transfer from the laboratory to industry. Our funding sources include the Swiss Innovation Agency (Innosuisse), the EU (Eurostars, Horizon 2020), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), various private foundations as well as direct funding from industry.

Our core competence is the development of innovative sensors and measurement methods in biomedical engineering from prototype design up to (pre)clinical validation. From sweat sensing and artificial skin to the detection and quantification of stimuli-responsive nanoparticles or thermotherapy devices, we are not afraid of tackling new challenges.

We benefit from state-of-the-art infrastructure that allows the development of demanding prototypes together with a team of talented and experienced scientists as well as undergraduate and graduate students.
