We are certus diagnostics

Who we are

We provide reliable rapid tests for the on-site detection of specific genes in a variety of microorganisms. Because of the increasing demand for quick and dependable results for the diagnosis of infectious diseases, we have developed a novel molecular detection method. Due to our extensive work experience and microbiology diagnostic laboratories, our test kits meet the clinical requirements and set new standards.

Our assays can be deployed in quality control in the pharmaceutical and nutritional industry, water surveillance, in human and veterinary point-of-care diagnostics and in molecular epidemiologic research.

certus molecular diagnostics ag was founded in March 2017 by the two former co-workers Samuel Zürcher (physician) and Alexander Lüthi (PhD in Biology). Besides winning several entrepreneurial awards and competitions, the young company has already launched first products and successfully completed a seed-financing round in the fall of 2017.
