Your Fasteris Services Teams


We are provider of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) & Sanger DNA sequencing services.

We supply NGS worldwide for private, academic, governmental and industrial research laboratories. Since 2013, we also provide sequencing services for medical genetics.

Effective September 3rd, 2020, Geneva-based Fasteris has joined forces with its medical genetics partners in Lausanne to create a new company re-named Genesupport SA.
As before, the NGS and Sanger sequencing services for researchers are provided under the brand name of Fasteris. We have taken action to ensure that same quality, fast turn-around times and same dedication to our Life Science partners will be maintained and stay guaranteed. 
The Medical genetics services are provided under the name


Medical diagnostics

  • Fasteris provides NGS services for medical genetics since 2013, in collaboration with Medisupport laboratories.

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.
