Advancing Nanopore sensing technology to Track and trace molecules.

Our Science

World leading research on nanopore sensing technology.


Welcome to NanoDecoder’s website!

NanoDecoder is a spinoff from the EPFL with a strong focus on scientific excellence and advancing nanopore sensing technology for deep social problems. Our team is impact-driven and believes in the importance of technology for a more sustainable and ethical future. With the help of the EPFL ecosystem, NanoDecoder obtained the financial support of the Enable and Ignition grants to develop the first prototype as well as the coaching support of Blaze Accelerator for business development.

NanoDecoder has a strong scientific team with multidisciplinary backgrounds in nanopore technology, protein engineering, machine learning, molecular diagnosis, microfluidic engineering, and electrical engineering. We build effective technical platforms integrating nanopore sensing technology for portable, highly parallelized, cheap, and fast molecular sensing devices.

Our products

Anti-Counterfeiting systems

The Problem
Traditional packaging systems based on optics and visual recognition can no longer meet the requirements of the global market for product anti-counterfeiting, tracking, and anti-theft. Moreover, supply chain transparency is key to stay flexible in a volatile and uncertain business environment.


Our Solution
Attaching molecular tags to product and using nanopore technology as an authentication method.


Our Product
A portable, secure, fast and easy authentication device incorporating our invisible molecular tag for anti-counterfeiting.

Molecular diagnostics

The Problem
Neurodegenerative diseases lack of effective and reliable early-stage diagnosis.


Our Solution
Using nanopore coupled with machine learning as a diagnostics device.


Our Product
A one-for-all device for versatile targets of interest using ultra-sensitive & accurate single-molecule detection. The device is not technically demanding, high throughput and affordable and allow disease diagnosis & prediction based on reliable machine learning.
