VisMederi collaborates actively with research bodies and both national and international universities.
A well consolidated synergy, both in European projects and in regular research, actively exists with the University of Siena, where both of the company’s founders have received their university education and where Professor Emanuele Montomoli is a faculty member and head of the Molecular Epidemiology Laboratory.
Among other Italian Universities, VisMederi collaborates with the University of Perugia and the University of Genoa. Ever since its presence in the Toscana Life Sciences Incubator, VisMederi participates in scientific research and publishing promoted by the Foundation and collaborates with other biomedical research and services companies present in the Science Park.
In 2013, VisMederi became shareholders of Accurange Ltd., a company that provides services in the Life Sciences field. Accurange reinforces VisMederi’s core business, besides being allowed to perform within the company some of the work that was previously done externally. Accurange specializes in adjustment, maintenance and calibration of laboratory instruments, in particular micropipettes and volume dispensers.
