In 2000, the future founders of Transnetyx, Bob Bean and Tim Hodge, asked a really good question, “Why can’t we automate genotyping?”
Four years later, Transnetyx was born by launching the world’s first fully-automated genotyping system for detecting transgenic, knock-out, knock-in, SNP, and now CRISPR mutations in mouse lines. Later, it added lines for zebrafish, rabbits, ferrets, goats, and rats. The mission of Transnetyx, then and now, is to help scientists accelerate research with fast, easy, and accurate real-time PCR genotyping.
Fast forward to today, and Transnetyx has genotyped more than 16 million samples in 24 or 72 hours with 99.97% accuracy. It has also built an inventory of more than 20,000 assays and more than 10,000 MGI and JAX lines.
Today, Transnetyx is the trusted automated genotyping resource for thousands of researchers in universities, hospitals, and bioscience companies around the world.
