People and equipment

LABOGENA is composed of about 40 people, engineers and highly qualified technicians with many years of experience in molecular genetics.

Our equipment level currently allows to realize every year nearly 400,000 analyzes on more than 20 animal species ranging from livestock to shellfish, through fish and pets.

LABOGENA has the most powerful automated devices currently on the market, such as transfer and DNA extraction plateforms, a sequencer capable of processing more than 1500 samples per day or a real-time PCR machine with an autoloader to analyze thousands of SNPs daily. To these technical plateforms, LABOGENA owns also two fully automated Illumina platforms (genotyping with DNA chips on Infinium technology) coupled to a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that allows to analyze nearly 200,000 analyzes per year. This activity is certified CS pro since 2011.

LABOGENA has a mass spectrometry platform (MassARRAY Analyzer 4 - Sequenom) to answer any requests for Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) analysis with a flow rate of 800 samples per day on 200 SNPs.

LABOGENA has 5 cold rooms (4°C) with a total area of 70m3 and three freezing rooms (-20°C) with a total area of 60m3 and is storing more than 2 million samples. All these facilities under monitoring, help maintain overall biological material completely secure.
