Current DNA technology allows for simple, high throughput analysis of the most complex genetic materials. This offers a lot of opportunities for a DNA expert like BaseClear. As CEO Bas Reichert explains: “DNA is found everywhere on this planet. It is part of humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Bacteria, fungi and viruses populate lakes and oceans, as well as the air and soil. The wide range of organisms and habitats makes that DNA analysis has many different applications and, consequently, a profound impact on our society.”

Expertise in microbial genomics

BaseClear, founded in 1993, is a pioneer in the DNA analysis market. BaseClear has been at the forefront of the sequencing revolution. We are based at the Leiden Bio Science Park, and from the start we have worked with the pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies that are also located at the park. Through the collaboration with these partners, who use microorganisms for a wide variety of applications, we have developed dedicated services for microbiological DNA research. BaseClear has grown together with the park, our customers and our partners. We have built up a strong expertise and network in molecular microbiology.

BaseClear is now conducting research into microorganisms in the broadest sense of the word, whereby the analyses are primarily based on DNA technologies. Together with our customers and partners, we want to understand the world of microorganisms even better and in some cases also control and influence them. This knowledge can be used to develop products and services that improve the quality of life and contribute to a healthy future for the planet.
