Today, ADSI is a research enterprise of the University of Innsbruck offering its services for phytopharma, dietary supplements, phytocosmetics, nutrition and related industries. The main focus is on phytosciences as a core scientific field, where screening services are offered. Services developed at ADSI are the basis of three pillars strategy: 1) screening and product development, 2) mode of action studies and confirmation of cosmetic claims and 3) quality control analyses. The ADSI is now an integral part of the Austrian research landscape and works closely with numerous universities and research institutions, as well as with industrial partners in Austria and abroad.
