Your entry point to a wealth of contacts, know-how and knowledge, for both personal and institutional support: BioAlps, the life science cluster of Western Switzerland. BioAlps offers you a dynamic network, an innovative and supportive environment, and immediate access to the world of life sciences. It comprises an active and fertile fabric of research institutions, academic institutions, start-up companies and large multinationals concentrated in a small, attractive geographic area with a great infrastructure.

SensUs is an international student competition on molecular biosensors for healthcare applications. SensUs is being organized by students at Eindhoven University of Technology in collaboration with professors of international universities. The participating teams consist of students from multiple scientific disciplines. Biosensing technologies are inherently multidisciplinary. To be successful, the teams need to creatively combine molecular technologies and device technologies. The maximum team size is 15 students and the students should be enrolled in a BSc or MSc program.

ArcoScreen aims at revolutionizing the discovery of drugs targeting G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). Our technology allows the identification of a drug’s mode of action in a single assay, directly on patient cells, which greatly increases the quality and the reliability of the results obtained. Thanks to the use of a microfluidic chip, our assay is fully automatized and delivers results in only 15 minutes.

Inspired by the mechanisms of platelet generation in the bone marrow, HemostOD developed an innovative solution to produce ex vivo platelets. Our unique process allows generating high quantities of platelets in a short period of time. HemostOD’s product provides the only efficient alternative to blood donor platelet transfusions. We create a new source of platelets, manufactured on demand, to relieve blood banks and hospitals. We provide reliable access to platelets for all.

Parithera’s goal is to save lives by providing a non-invasive diagnostic which analyses cancer treatment resistance and allows clinicians to adjust treatment regimen. From a simple blood draw, Parithera’s ExTrace Dx solution isolates circulating tumor cells (CTCs) and provides transcriptomic information at the single cell level. This approach is much less invasive than tissue biopsy and provides a more accurate tumor description. ExTrace Dx allows clinicians to adapt treatment protocols and provide the right treatment at the right time to each patient from a simple blood draw.

The conference is kindly supported by Innosuisse, the Swiss Innovation Agency. Innosuisse funds science-based innovation in the interests of industry and society with the aim of increasing the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Switzerland.
