We make things measurable that cannot be measured today: Our aim is to promote the development of analytical technologies by combining our expertise on chemistry, biology, physics and informatics. Research at ISAS concentrates on providing methods for a multi-parameter analysis of biological materials; we want to improve the prevention and early diagnosis of diseases and enable faster, more precise therapies.

Excellent interdisciplinary research, the training of up-and-coming scientific talent and the transfer of our findings to science, economy and the general public are our key objectives.
