Animal Research and Veterinary Genetics

Whether you are working in veterinary research and diagnostics, using animal models to better understand human diseases, looking into evolution by studying genetics, or working in the animal breeding industry, We have the most innovative technologies in house available to analyze your animals. For example we have the capacity to screen large sample numbers in record time.
