A unique experience in DNA analysis

Since its foundation in 2001, GenoScreen has a solid international experience in scientific DNA sequencing services for all kinds of genomes : humans, animals, plants and microorganisms.

Our scientific staff gathered high-level skills in all aspects of genome and transcriptome analysis.
This experience provides our customers with highly valuable expertise when choosing the best technical approaches and designing analytical protocols.

Personalized project support

A specialist team monitors each project: definition of the study protocol, choice of the technology, sample preparation, bioinformatics analysis, etc. Take advantage of our unique team’s experience in choosing the best analytical strategy for your project!

For each case, GenoScreen provides a personalized solution based on a comprehensive portfolio of technologies and methodologies.

Cutting-edge bioinformatics technologies

GenoScreen has developed a number of exclusive bioinformatics tools and algorithms to transform genomic data into interpretable and exploitable information.

These tools are flexible and can be adapted to each scientific case, being able to provide our customers with personalized solutions.

High-quality, secure, easily interpreted data

Comprehensive, precise and contextualized, the data generated by our analysis programs constitute a true asset for your research by accelerating your analyses and ensuring reliable interpretation.

GenoScreen has developed several advanced, exclusive bioinformatics solutions:

  • Metabiote® and WHORMSS® for the analysis of microbiome metagenomics data.
  • Deeplex® for the fast molecular diagnosis of antibiotic resistance in tuberculosis.

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 is an accredited training organization (reference: 31 59 06657 59 DRTEFP, Lille, France). All our training courses are eligible for inclusion in France’s personal and professional training schemes.

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.

GenoScreen's assets

  • Comprehensive assistance from extraction to final quantification
  • Significant specialization in gene expression in microbes and bacteria
