NETWORK OF ASSOCIATIONS
The business model of ImmunoSYS is essentially based on expertise that comes through a network of associations in academia as well as industry. We prefer to keep ImmunoSYS focused and specialised in immunology and access our associated partners specialised in other disciplines (for example analytical chemistry) to provide a solution that requires an integrated approach of sciences. This helps to tap into higher expertise and lower our overheads so that we can offer better quality to our clients at a more competitive rate. The network also brings in more state-of-the-art research knowledge into practical translation enabling academic experts to engage with the industry. Our confederation style network enables other specialist SMEs to bring their expertise into an integrated business project.
In summary, we provide the immunology and the whole project, and our associates provide the other bits.
