BioGenex was founded in 1981 in San Ramon, California. The company was established with a firm resolution to become a global molecular medicine company providing affordable solutions for life sciences research and personalized medicine.
In 1991, BioGenex acquired American Bionetics (ABN) and turned their DNA/RNA reagent business into a profitable venture within six months. Since then, the company has launched a series of automated staining systems and a full suite of innovative histology products.
Today, BioGenex is a global market leader in molecular pathology providing customer-centric solutions for complete automation of cell and tissue staining. Through its cutting-edge and patented technologies, the company has transformed the practice of slide-based staining in many molecular pathology laboratories.
Early, affordable and accurate diagnosis at the molecular level has resulted in a higher quality of life for cancer patients. BioGenex takes pride in making a difference through its innovative products and superior customer service.
