Service Provider in genomics laboratory services

Founded in 2002 as ServiceXS, we are a young and dynamic company specialized in genetic laboratory services such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and array based services. The combination of state-of-the-art equipment and a team of dedicated scientists, enables us to answer your scientific questions rapidly and accurately. Our services range from consultation in experimental design, assay performance, validation of the results, to data analysis. Our mission is to facilitate your research by generating reliable, high-quality data that paves the way to new insights and scientific breakthroughs.

In January 2015, ServiceXS changed its name to GenomeScan B.V. to symbolize our growing involvement in patient diagnostics. The brandname ServiceXS is still operational for all our R&D activities and the services that we provide. GenomeScan is involved in finding disease causes using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in tight collaboration with the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).
