Since its foundation in 2001, GenoScreen has been developing DNA analysis services that meet the needs of life science research groups.
The company’s growth is based on constant R&D investment and strong specialization in molecular microbiology.

This growth summarizes three phases:

  • service provision in genomics and bioinformatics, which enabled us to develop relationships with many life science research groups.
  • the development of R&D activities, in collaboration with leading research groups.
  • the introduction of an innovation strategy, and specialization in international niche markets in molecular microbiology.

This development pathway has enabled GenoScreen to commercialize three types of products/services:

  • scientific analyses and monitoring services in genomics and bioinformatics.
  • consultancy, expert analysis and training in our fields of expertise.
  • innovative kits for the detection and analysis of isolated microorganisms or microbial communities.
