Genopole provides 20 technological platforms (functioning on shared-use, collaborative and/or service models) and five ancillary services suites with the objective of enabling laboratory research and business development in eight fields of research within the life sciences.

The diversity and mutualization of these facilities creates access to state of the art technologies that would be extremely onerous to acquire for individual start-ups, young businesses or laboratories.

A dedicated team manages the overall operation of the platforms and also guides:

  • all phases of the creation of shared-use platforms and services (from needs identification to operational deployment);
  • the assurance of quality criteria, cost-effectiveness and Genopole-accreditation visibility;
  • the monitoring of the execution of missions by the various platforms;
  • synergies between companies and laboratories to give momentum to these structures and favor effective technology transfers.

Genopole’s shared-use platforms give laboratories and biotech start-ups access to technologies that would otherwise be out of their reach.
