The centre will open by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2021
Superlab Suisse AG, a Zurich-based private company offering the concept – unique in Switzerland – of the Lab as a Service to life sciences companies, is launching its first branch at Biopôle (Lausanne). The centre will host up to 15 companies and projects. Through this partnership, Biopôle SA continues its unwavering support for the local innovation ecosystem and the creation and development of young start-ups in the canton of Vaud.
Following the creation of StartLab in 2018, Biopôle has consolidated its offering to young start-ups, making the park the only site in Switzerland that caters for all the stages in the evolution of young life sciences companies.
Superlab Suisse’s Lab as a Service business concept includes innovatively designed laboratory facilities and state-of-the-art equipment as well as professional and concierge services and funding support for companies working in biotech, pharma and medtech. The serviced, ready-to-move-into laboratory allows companies to focus their investment on innovation rather than fitting out space, while the extended service and concierge offering will allow young entrepreneurs to save a significant amount of time and thus focus on their innovation. The concept was born of a deep sense of admiration for scientific researchers and their work, and reinvented the components that make up the laboratory environment with the aim of not only bolstering efficiency but also improving the researchers’ experience of their workplace, thus giving them their first taste of the labs of the future.
Biopôle SA confirms its dedication to supporting young life sciences companies by backing up the arrival of Superlab Suisse at its life sciences park, located at the heart of the Health Valley in the canton of Vaud. With this collaboration, the not-for-profit company wants to make sure that young entrepreneurs and start-ups get the support they need in the region.
