We are proud of the expertise that we have available. Since our foundation in 1993, we have developed a powerful combination of competence in molecular biology, genomics and DNA-based analyses, combined with knowledge of microbiology and its applications in biotechnology and pharmaceutical research. In our award-winning Nucleus building, we have installed state-of-the-art robotics and analysis equipment, including the latest sequencing technologies as offered by Illumina, Pacific Biosciences and Oxford Nanopore Technologies. We are continuously developing our knowledge and capabilities, which allows us to react quickly and flexibly to the needs of our clients.
We believe in encouraging an open and collaborative atmosphere, where we welcome our partners and customers, work closely with them, and offer them support by creating customised solutions. We want to build an environment in which our employees and our clients enjoy what they are doing. We believe in building communities to explore the potential of microorganisms together. We do this, for example, by collaborating on joint publications about industrial biotechnology applications, and with expert meetings on a wide range of topics that we organise throughout the year.
We always strive for sustainability in everything that we do. This results in long-lasting collaborations with our partners, clients and employees. We want to be a trustworthy partner that offers reliable, high-quality solutions. We choose to work in an environmentally sustainable way, from building design to how we operate our processes. We also see sharing our knowledge for the benefit of society and the future of the planet as part of our social responsibility.
