PARK INNOVAARE welcomes Excelsus Structural Solutions


Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG, Villigen, a spin-off company of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), has moved to PARK INNOVAARE’s deliveryLAB. Focusing on industrial R&D, Excelsus offers synchrotron-radiation-based analytical services to the industry, with emphasis on pharmaceuticals, food and chemicals.

Excelsus Structural Solutions (Swiss) AG received a warm welcome as a new resident high-tech company of PARK INNOVAARE from Prof. Daniel Kündig, CEO of PARK INNOVAARE, and Dr. Giorgio Travaglini, Head of the PSI Technology Transfer department. On April 27th, they met with Dr. Fabia Gozzo, founder and CEO of Excelsus, for a short ceremony at PARK INNOVAARE to symbolically mount the company’s name plate on the outside wall of its new headquarters.

Excelsus provides a novel approach to synchrotron-based structural analyses.

Excelsus offers a fast, easy and affordable access to state-of-the-art characterization tools for the structural and microstructural analysis of materials (pharmaceuticals, food and aroma compounds, pigments, polymers as well as various other chemicals), for the selection, development and manufacturing of high-quality products. Excelsus’ core activities are based on unique high-resolution, in-situ and time-resolved Synchrotron X-Ray Powder Diffraction (S-XRPD) developed at the PSI and acknowledged worldwide. Furthermore, the company utilises a problem-solving approach to assist its industrial customers in the design and execution of unconventional experimental setups through scientific consulting and access to a wide scientific network.

A win-win choice for PARK INNOVAARE and Excelsus.

“With Excelsus being part of PARK INNOVAARE, we are gaining momentum for our growth. It is a big step forward for the development of the scientific park,” says Prof. Daniel Kündig. Also for Excelsus, the relocation to PARK INNOVAARE is certainly having a positive impact. In the middle of the vibrating PSI campus, the company can truly benefit from PARK INNOVAARE’s fast growing network, enlarge its customer basis and initiate new partnerships as well as facilitate the recruiting of experienced staff.
