Our Vision

Enabling personalized
medicine for you

Our DNA is unique and it is the most precious thing we have. GenomSys wants everyone to protect it and leverage it to truly enjoy personalized medicine to his/her own uniqueness.

Thanks to the innovative technologies developed by our engineers and bio-informaticians, today everybody can access their own genomic data, store it safely in their smartphone, order analyses, read the results and share them with their doctor.

A true digital revolution which makes personalized medicine accessible to everyone.

Personalized Medicine

One-size-fits-all has been the basis of medicine – thanks to advancements in medicine and genomics, that’s no more the case, as nobody is equal to anyone else, and drugs act differently based on DNA. GenomSys enables everyone to access and check its DNA whenever and wherever they need it.

Bring Genomics into the Digital Age

Thanks to the development of the fully digital MPEG-G standard and its compliant analytical tools, GenomSys takes genomics truly into the digital age. From the dungeons of labs and remote servers, DNA analysis is brought to everyone’s smartphone, with a user-friendly interface, simple and easy as watching a movie.

Security and Interoperability

GenomSys leverages MPEG-G built-in encryption to ensure that everyone’s most sensitive information is carefully protected – and in their own hands!, while adopting an international standard to guarantee full interoperability and hence to future-proof both customers’ data and its own solutions.

Our Expertise

GenomSys is a Swiss company with a multicultural team of experienced and talented geneticists, bio-informaticians, mobile developers and software engineers led by senior management with long-standing activity in digital health, software development and genomics.

Our history

Founded in 2016 by a group of experienced engineers and bio-informaticians under the leadership of Claudio Alberti, our CTO, GenomSys is a Swiss company developing state-of-the-art technology and services for the efficient analysis and secure management of genomic information.

The company is a pioneer in the development of open standards for genomic data storage and processing – it led the process of standardization of ISO/IEC 23092 (MPEG-G) – and in the implementation of compliant software and tools for its effective application.  

In October 2019, GenomSys secured a CHF9.3 million Series A funding to take the development of the company to the next stage.

Now GenomSys is taking the next step, enabling laboratories and end-users to take advantage of the new standard: MPEG-G native analytical pipelines for more efficient storage and focused analyses via selective access, and the ability for people to store and analyze their own genomic data in their smartphones, bringing genomics into the mobile world.

In doing so, GenomSys defines a new paradigm with a highly differentiated solution: a consistent value proposition emphasizing privacy and convenience to truly deliver personalized medicine to individuals by leveraging the uniqueness of the new digital genomic standard and the pervasiveness of mobile, directly or through business partners.

GenomSys headquarters are in the Swiss Health Valley, at the center of a hub of technology and genomic innovation around the research centers of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the Swiss Genome Center. The company recently opened an additional scientific center in Ticino, an emerging hub for innovation in biotechnology and digital developments in the south of Switzerland.
