Detection and Diagnostics
We apply and further develop instrumental and bioanalytical methods and technologies for the detection of individual substances. These are used in the environmental and food sectors and online, as well as for process monitoring in the life sciences. By developing new methods in laboratory diagnostics we help to ensure safe and efficient healthcare.

Point-of-care tests play an important role in developing countries and structurally weak areas because they enable rapid diagnostics without laboratory infrastructure and trained medical staff. The aim of our research is to develop and optimize diagnostic tests based on isothermal amplification of viral or pathogenic DNA. We benefit from our expertise in the purification of proteins and the development of in vitro assays with DNA helicases, DNA polymerases and other DNA binding proteins.
The section for Analytical Technologies is the leading academic institution at a University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland for both teaching and research in the fields of Analytical Chemistry.
The Coffee Excellence Center is a leading academic institution dedicated to the science and technology of coffee. Founded in 2008 by Prof. Dr. Chahan Yeretzian, our center’s mission is to explore and expand the frontiers in the science and technology of coffee along all disciplines.
The group of environmental Analytics addresses the identification and quantification of organic substances and chemical elements in various environmental samples and materials in trace amounts.

In the team of the Bioanalytics Research Group we accomplish projects in research and development in collaboration with industry and university partners. Furthermore, we pursue research in the field of structure-activity relationship of phage proteins. Thereby we use our expertise in the areas of protein engineering, recombinant protein technology, downstream processing, early development of biologics and bioanalytics and the infrastructure of our well-equipped laboratories.
