Our mission is to
advance energy storage by accelerating
your research.

Become the game changer

A new way
of research

The three partners Lukas Lutz, Daniel Alves Dalla Corte and Luca Scherrer combine different backgrounds in research, industry and business strategy and analytics.

At SPHERE, we believe there is a more efficient way to do research. We want researchers to focus on their core skill - designing experiments and not wasting time with the often painful execution. Coming from research ourselves, we are passionate about improving the the researchers daily experience in the laboratory. Therefore we made it to our mission to develop equipment that combines user-friendliness with innovative ways of accessing new data about your reactions.
