Range of services

Our flexible collaboration model for services and industrial/research projects means that we are able to start work on new projects at short notice. Our cutting-edge facilities allow us to manufacture industrial prototypes. Thanks to a validated cleanroom and ISO 13485 certification, we are able to produce medtech devices in-house.

Research + Development

Research collaboration

Carry out your R&D projects with us and receive support from Innosuisse. Key criteria for eligibility: Innovation and the prospect of successful market implementation. Projects generally take between one and three years.

Contract research

You commission us for research and we develop a practice-oriented, research-based solution at current rates. We have many years’ experience in planning and implementing industrial projects.

Consulting services

As your partner, we provide flexible support for your services and product development activities. If you require any further information, please get in touch.

ISO 13485 certification

Medical products are strictly regulated by European directives – guaranteeing their effectiveness and patient safety. In order to meet the demands of the market for medical products, the Institute for Human Centered Engineering HuCE has established the subgroup HuCE microCert, which is ISO 13485-certified for design, development and manufacturing. HuCE is committed to close collaboration with SMEs in the field of applied research and in the development of medical devices. A certified ISO 7 cleanroom has been set up for manufacturing medical devices that require a controlled environment.

Student theses

Innovation and research are key to strengthening competitiveness. That is why companies from a wide variety of industries have long collaborated with our bachelor’s and master’s students. Here, our students incorporate aspects of their respective partner company’s work into their thesis, supervised by us. In doing so, they enable the company in question to avail itself not only of the students’ own academic knowledge and experience, but also that of their lecturers.

Training + Continuing education

Bachelor’s, master’s and continuing education programmes offer specialists a suitable qualification for every stage of their career. New findings and developments in research feed directly into our teaching, which provides students with a hands-on approach to the field.
