Get involved


Ecosystems are a natural asset, but we lack data about their health. Your investment can actively shape the future of the world's biodiversity and contribute to the sustainable development of the planet through large-scale, digitally verifiable DNA-based monitoring.

Join us!

If you're up for a challenge and believe that your contribution can make an impact, get in touch with us. Experience in (molecular) biology, bioinformatics, software development, computer science or business administration is particularly helpful.

Our story

The time was right to make an impact. SimplexDNA® was founded in July 2021 as a spin-off from ETH Zürich. We are based in Winterthur, Switzerland, in the heart of Europe.

Thanks to an innovative spirit and years of experience in molecular methods and conservation research, we are making a difference for our clients, partners, and the planet. In our own laboratory facilities, we carry out small and large-scale projects to the highest quality standards.

Here's how we are tracking:

Projects managed: 6

Samples handled: 128
