Our history proves our technological leadership since 1952. Winner of several official Innovation Awards, SAFAS invented many technologies in the field of spectroscopy and medicine like the first monochromator grating spectrophotometers and spectrofluorometers, the first real-time oxymeters, the first grating monochromator multidetection readers, the first robotized readers with zero transfer time, the first fluorescence and bioluminescence units which can be validated on certified and connected standards, the first microplate readers with built-in auto-calibration standards, etc... SAFAS has a strong experience in Quality Management for which we have solutions unique on the market.

We are proud to trustfully serve many prestigious laboratories, like research centers (CNRS, INSERM, INRA, Pasteur Institute, Genopole), pharmaceutical & petrochemical groups, hospitals, vaccine manufacturers, military & nuclear centers, environmental and governmental laboratories, biotech companies as well as many startups and schools which love our low ownership costs. Our exclusive SUSTAINABLE SPECTROSCOPY concept is a strong commitment against programmed obsolescence, providing great return on investment over decades.

A disruptive innovation enables to measure cfDNA (cell-free DNA) down to 4pg/ml without purification nor amplification, in a few seconds thanks to a simple reagent, directly in blood plasma or in culture media. Excellent for toxicity tests, it provides cell death kinetics, can detect and follow up cancer, infarcts, strokes, trauma, evaluate the efficiency of targeted therapies, and follow up sports trainings.
