A History of Delivering Superior Service
Genemed Biotechnologies, Inc. was founded in 1987 and is located in the center of the South San Francisco Biotechnology community. For over 15 years, Genemed has been providing outstanding contract development and manufacturing services for well-established pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies. In 2009, to continue with our tradition of delivering excellent service, we launched our very own product lines to better serve the needs of the Biotechnology community.
Advances in IHC and ISH techniques in the past decade, especially their use on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissues and discovery of newer bio-molecules, result in their increasingly valuable role in surgical pathology, and increased the demands from surgical pathology services. Nowadays, in the context of a detailed morphological analysis and differential diagnosis based on the H&E staining, IHC and ISH have become major parts of the practice of diagnostic surgical pathology worldwide to help in rendering a diagnosis, classification of tumors, prediction of the likely origin of a carcinoma, demonstration of micro metastases, provision of prognostic information, justification of expensive targeted therapy (companion diagnosis), and demonstration of microorganisms. Today, we are in an era of translational crossroads for biomarkers and personalized medicine, and IHC and ISH will remain center stage in the demonstration of newer bio-markers and their applications.
Genemed's goal is to provide superior products and services that support both academic and commercial endeavors in the area of in-vitro diagnostics and fundamental scientific research.
Genemed provides cancer and infectious disease diagnostic reagents for different instruments and technology platforms. We also provide service to our partners to accelerate their IVD product development and commercialization.
We create smarter and user-friendly diagnostic tools and solutions by applying our expertise in product design and manufacturing processes. Genemed strives to go above and beyond to meet every customer need with our personalized service. We are passionate at applying innovative technology and breakthrough scientific discoveries to improve product quality and reliability which ensure accurate diagnoses and enhanced patient care.
We pride ourselves in conducting business in a fair and ethical manner. Genemed values our employees by promoting a learning environment with professional growth.
