Welcome to Fasteris

A Swiss biotechnology company based in Geneva.

 

Provider of Next-Generation Sequencing & Sanger DNA sequencing services. We work worldwide for private, academic and industrial research laboratories. Since 2012, we provide NGS services for medical diagnostics.

 

Medical diagnostics

  • Fasteris provides NGS services for medical genetics tests performed in collaboration with Medisupport laboratories.
  • In 2017, Fasteris has obtained ISO 15189 accreditation for the NGS part of Prendia, the non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) developed with Medisupport laboratories and SIB. We also obtained federal authorizations for medical genetics, including the specific authorization of preimplantation genetic screening (PGS).

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) for researchers

  • Our founders are inventors of the "cluster technology" (PAT 1996) and of Y-shape adaptors - technology that meanwhile is commonly used in illumina sequencing systems.
  • Starting in 2007, FASTERIS has developed a very broad range of applications for the analysis of genomes, transcriptomes or metagenomes. We cover all steps from "library preparation" to "bioinformatics analysis".
  • In 2017 and again in 2019, we have been awared "illumina Propel Certified".
  • In 2018, we were certified to "ISO9001:2015".
  • In 2019, we have upgraded our machinery equipment with illumina NovaSeq 6000.

Our most popular products and library services

Customised services

  • Our experts are happy to assist researchers in developing custom protocols.
  • All the protocols can be performed with multiplexing of several samples per lane to reduce the overall sequencing costs.
  • We offer the flexibility to prepare libraries according to your needs.
  • We will provide you with the highest quality sequences from large or small numbers of samples by using the latest NGS technology.
  • Our machines are upgraded to latest technology or latest available chemistry version.

Bioinformatics

  • Whether your samples were sequenced at Fasteris or elsewhere, our experienced bioinformaticians will help you extract the biologically meaningful information from the billions of bases of your NGS data.

Sanger Sequencing

  • Our professionals are dedicated to offer the highest quality Sanger (Capillary) DNA Sequencing: they will provide you with personalized advice and deliver results within 24 hours.

Research & Development

  • Experienced scientists at your service to develop custom protocols for the success of your projects.
