Where PCR begins. Again.

Join the PCR revolution with diaxxo.

About us

Diaxxo AG, founded in 2020, is a spin-off company originating out of the Functional Materials Lab at ETH Zurich.

We envision a future where precise and reliable diagnostics can be accessed anywhere by anyone. We believe that thanks to our Point-Of-Care PCR tests, doctors will be able to identify and fight diseases faster, and experts will be able to perform much faster DNA analysis.

Our mission is to enable DNA analyses to be widely diffused and adopted by making them accurate, fast and convenient.

What makes diaxxo special?

Quality is our priority
As your results are only as good as your detection technique.

Team work is our philosophy
as it takes two flints
to make a fire.

Passion is our driving force
as nothing great can be accomplished
without it.
