GenoScreen is a partner in collaborative research projects that bring together startups, multinationals and public-sector organizations. Our R&D teams provide their knowledge and expertise in the molecular microbiology of isolated agents and complex communities. This allowed our teams to develop our own projects for elaborating innovative products and services.
Our projects are designed to:
- Improve the diagnosis and management of acute/chronic diseases on humans and animals.
- Characterize and monitor microbial biodiversity, with applications in agronomy, agrifood and environment.
The common feature of these projects is the development of molecular tools for the characterization, monitoring and diagnosis of microbial communities. The key objective is to market simple analytical solutions and (ultimately) preventive, corrective or even therapeutic products based on microorganisms.
The BIMM-SOL project (2016-2018)
The goal of this project is to commercialize processes for analyzing molecular microbial biomarkers in the qualitative biological diagnosis of soils.
The DIAMA project (2016–2021)
The DIAMA project is assessing and validating the Deeplex®-MycTB test in Africa and Europe. This rapid molecular test (based on mass sequencing) detects and genotypes mycobacteria and predicts antituberculosis drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex strains.
