GenomaA Biotech is a company specialized in molecular biology that provides solutions for genetic sequencing and identification of species by DNA for a wide range of applications both in agribusiness (agriculture, livestock and forestry) and environment (environmental DNA) as well as in the food industry (dairy products, drinks, pastas and others) and sugar and alcohol.
Our solutions for genetic sequencing and identification of species by DNA allow us to improve the productivity and profitability of our customers, in addition to solving technical challenges in a more agile, accurate and safe way.
GenomaA has one of the most modern laboratories in Brazil when it comes to DNA extraction, genetic sequencing and bioinformatics. It is one of the few companies in Latin America that has mastered advanced genetic sequencing technology using nanopores. It is a DNA sequencing platform developed and marketed by Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT). Its main feature is the ability to sequence long DNA fragments of up to 50kb, providing greater security in species identification.
Installed in the Technological Park of Piracicaba (SP), GenomaA has great synergy with the
University of São Paulo (ESALQ and CENA), a national reference in teaching and research in the environmental, agricultural and forestry areas.
