An ambitious R&D program
Ever since its foundation, GenoScreen has implemented high-level R&D programs in order to continuously improve the quality, performance level and delay time of its genomic analysis services.
GenoScreen also develops its own methodological approaches and solutions linked to innovative, high-performance analytical tools.
Between the most valuable discoveries achieved until now, we can find: microbiome analysis, microbial strain typing, and the detection of antibiotic resistance in tuberculosis.
The results of these researches have been materialized under products like MIRU-VNTR, Metabiote®/WHORMSS® and Deeplex®.
Expertise in genomic technologies is now essential for high-quality life science research.
These technologies are still evolving very rapidly and therefore require in-depth, continuous training to ensure high-quality analyses and results.
To address these challenges, GenoScreen has used its in-house skills to develop cutting-edge training courses in all fields of genomic analysis.
These training courses are specifically targeted at researchers, biologists and physicians, and provide the keys to unlocking knowledge by mastering the latest genome analysis techniques - a major boost for your research!

GenoScreen - Services provided
GenoScreen supports your R&D groups to analyze gene expression in detail, whatever your research objective is.
Our teams use real-time quantitative PCR techniques to analyze gene expression:
- The absolute quantification which allows to measure of gene expression in uncharacterized samples by comparison with a standard range (i.e. a calibration curve).
- The relative quantification which allows to compare gene expression levels in two different samples.
Our gene expression analysis services are based either on a pre-formatted or a custom TaqMan® design running on an ABI 7900HT system and starting from DNA or (after reverse transcription into cDNA) RNA.
- Comprehensive assistance from extraction to final quantification
- Significant specialization in gene expression in microbes and bacteria
- Last-generation technical facilities
