Overview

Founded in December 1997 as a spin-off from MediGene AG, MediGenomix GmbH is a bioanalytics company focusing on DNA analysis and sequencing. It offers DNA sequencing for all project sizes and applications, SNP screening and pharmacogenomic risk profiling.

In addition, the company provides other sequencing-based services such as genotyping for animal breeding and plant cultivation and lineage determination and proof of identity through genetic fingerprinting. The company also provides forensic DNA analysis, paternity tests, molecular veterinary diagnostics and tests to detect genetically modified organisms in food.

In November 2001, MediGenomix took over the Genomics branch of TopLab GmbH, which will now focus on supplying proteomics services to customers. The company also offers a genetic test to determine resistance to new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
