History

The realization of a project

Registered in Besançon as an official business on April 11th, 2014, SAS SMALTIS was founded by Sophie GUENARD and Cédric MULLER, two PhD holders in Life and Health sciences from the University of Franche-Comté. The co-founders gave birth to this business creation project after numerous requests for scientific collaborations at the time of their doctoral training. Their participation to the virtual business creation contest “Les Entrepreneuriales 2012” for which they were awarded the blue ribbon, allowed them to be aware of a growing service market and they made the subsequent choice to become business owners. The admission to the Incubator of Innovative Business of Franche-Comté in January 2013 was a turning point for the company.
What they first considered to be a multi-service business restricted to bacteriology and molecular biology soon turned into company whose objective is to establish itself as the leader in microbiology, by offering tailor-made and high added-value expertise for tomorrow's innovations in the field of health.
