Passionate about the laboratory

Analyzing patient samples and determining results and diagnoses – these tasks come with a very special degree of responsibility and are carried out by LabPoint. Founded as a start-up, the company has established itself in the field of laboratory diagnostics. CEO Gianfranco Cosentino has relied on protection from Zurich from the very beginning.

Specializing in medical diagnostics and analysis, the company headquartered in Avenches primarily supports hospitals and physicians' practices throughout Switzerland – but also serves private individuals who wish to determine their blood sugar level, for instance. LabPoint's aim is to provide optimal quality in diagnostics and laboratory tests. Ultimately, its work contributes to physicians being able to treat their patients successfully. 

LabPoint already has several ultra-modern laboratories throughout Switzerland – and the number is set to grow. The company founder, Gianfranco Cosentino cites expansion as one of his targets. But he emphasizes that the concept of quality remains the focus. He also has a dream: as a fan of digitalization, he would like to have his own app that can show the nearest LabPoint. 

LabPoint relies on the protection of Zurich

"We are lab freaks but not insurance pros," says Gianfranco Cosentino, CEO at LabPoint. This is one of the reasons why he relies on Zurich as a partner for insurance matters. As an entrepreneur in the area of laboratory medicine, he handles sensitive data and expensive laboratory equipment. At the same time, he has to grapple with subjects such as protecting his employees and labor laws. Accordingly, good advice is important to him, as is his human contact.

He gets both of these from Zurich General Agent Mario Murisier and his team: "We have been able to support LabPoint from its beginning as a start-up, offering suitable solutions at every stage." Thanks to extensive industry knowledge and experience in insuring corporate customers, Zurich knows what is important when it comes to company insurance – whether in the start-up phase, growth phase, or as an established company. 

Good advice at any time

People, buildings, equipment – the list of things to be insured can get long. This is why we offer protection for all relevant corporate areas. A holistic and individual solution from a single source – that, too, was Gianfranco Cosentino's wish. It is great that Zurich is able to support the LabPoint success story in this way.
