The Manufacturing for In Vitro Diagnostics (M4IVD) was founded in 2019 to form an industry and research alliance that is focused on the development and pilot manufacturing for In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) products, including Point-of-Care (POC) devices, under a GMP quality management system and ISO 13485.
With many small to medium sized Swiss life science companies that are active in the research and development of biomarkers, M4IVD addresses an important gap in the technology transfer infrastructure in Switzerland. Integrating expertise and technologies from various partners, M4IVD offers a platform that helps companies to successfully accelerate the development and pilot production of IVD tests for companion diagnostics or personal health.

A significant part of the M4IVD overall budget is provided by our industrial partners.
