Centre Suisse d’Electronique et Microtechnique Sa


CSEM is a Swiss private non-profit organisation providing access to technologies by carrying out applied research, product research and development, feasibility studies, product engineering and production of special devices. CSEM's core expertise is in the areas of micro and nanotechnology, microelectronics and information systems. CSEM operates from its headquarters in Neuchâtel and also runs centres in Zurich, Alpnach, Basel and Landquart. Presently, the organisation has a staff of nearly 400 employees over two thirds of whom hold an academic degree. It is supported with long term contracts provided by the Swiss Government to finance applied research.

Role in the project

CSEM has three distinct roles in the project: the project coordination (WP8), the realization of the on-chip ENP detection module (WP3), and the design and fabrication of cartridge modules for WP1-WP4. As project coordinator, CSEM will focus on managing the scope, schedule and resources of the project to achieve its objectives and on supporting the SMEs to maximize their benefits. As WP3 leader, CSEM will drive the integration of optical detection with microfluidic-based separation. As the responsible for cartridge development, CSEM will support the SME partners by providing the technology for miniaturization with the goal of lowering reagent volumes and instrument size.
