About Swisens

Founded in 2016 as a spin-off of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Swisens AG develops advanced sensing technologies to monitor environmental threats in our surrounding air. Our focus is currently on detecting and identifying Pollen accurately and in real-time, as such allergies affect more than 20% of the Swiss population. We may not be able to make Pollen disappear, but real-time measurements help people avoid the problematic areas or make countermeasures in time.
The range of detection includes allergens such as pollen, mold spores or excrements of house dust mite. Users have time to act and take preventive measures because of the precise real-time information. Meteorological services and Allergologists appreciate the reliable and
comprehensive data on allergens, which allow improved forecasting and risk management related to allergies and asthma.
Swisens is applying for a patent and is supported by Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the Swiss Federal Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI), zentralschweiz innovativ - an initiative of the cantons of Central Switzerland to support innovative sme's, aha! Swiss Allergy Centre - a foundation which campaigns for over three million people in Switzerland which are affected by an allergy or intolerance, Swiss Photonics - the Swiss national thematic network for photonics and Edmund Optics - a leading producer of optics, imaging, and photonics technology.
