LGC Establishes Genomics Division

Jun 17 2010

LGC, a leading independent provider of diagnostic and analytical testing services and reference materials to the public and private sectors, announced the launch of its Genomics division this month.

Since acquiring Berlin-based AGOWA GmbH in 2005, genomics has seen successful growth as part of LGC’s Life & Food Sciences Division, providing an array of flexible nucleic acid sample extraction services and products such as DNA sequencing, next generation sequencing and genomic services to international pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and private and public research organisations. The launch of the new division is part of a wider organisational restructuring and is in line with LGC’s strategy for growth and expansion of operations. As part of the restructuring process, AGOWA genomics products and services will be rebranded LGC Genomics.

The international DNA sequencing and genomics market is experiencing rapid growth. The decision to launch the LGC Genomics division reflects LGC’s confidence in its ability to expand its range of products and services and continue to invest in its staff, facilities and equipment.

John McQuillian, Managing Director of the LGC Genomics Division, commented: “The launch of LGC Genomics as a new operating division is an exciting step for LGC and presents excellent opportunities for growth. Under the new brand, LGC Genomics will continue to advance the development and delivery of first-rate genomic services and products, keeping our customers at the forefront of technology and expertise in this increasingly sophisticated field of science. Our aim is for LGC Genomics to become Europe’s leading genomics provider, through organic growth and selected strategic acquisitions.”
