Headed by Professor Ursula Spichiger-Keller, the former ETH Zurich institute named CCS, the Center for Chemical Sensors developed the technology and expertise and built the experience in the field of bio/chemical sensors that laid the foundation for starting up C-CIT AG. In 2002 Dipl. Ing. Stefan Spichiger and Prof. Dr. U.E. Spichiger-Keller founded the C-CIT AG with 6 other shareholders from which C-CIT Sensors AG was spun out in 2013.
C-CIT Sensors, an ISO 9001:2015 certified company with several products used as reference methods by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS, www.metas.ch) is backed by Abalis (http://www.abalis.ch) and focuses on the development, production and marketing of ion-selective electrodes and enzyme-based sensors for measuring relevant parameters in cell cultures, water, sweat and other aqueous liquids. C-CIT Sensors’ management team is passionate about developing new products and applications and thereby serving its customers and stakeholders.
In 2018 C-CIT Sensors AG moved in to new rooms in the TUWAG area. The new rooms offer bright rooms and the new laboratory for development and production corresponds to ISO 7 standard.
