Our staff and facilities comprise knowledge, experience and equipment for performing projects related to effect-based testing and the development and validation of new experimental tools and approaches. We use this infrastructure for improving and expanding our own portfolio, but we also offer contract analysis services and contract research.

BDS is located at the Amsterdam Science Park (ASP) in the Netherlands. The Amsterdam Science Park hosts one of the largest concentrations of beta sciences in Europe. Among the residents of the ASP are the University of Amsterdam Faculty of Science, Amsterdam University College, other research institutes and some 120 companies – from start-ups to multinationals – all working in the fields of IT, Life Sciences, advanced technology, and sustainability.

We are operating internationally and can offer contract-service analyses, contract research and licencing of our CALUX® biotechnology. BDS has a state-of-the-art and fully equipped laboratory with a wide range of methods, high level of knowledge and expertise.
