DNA Gensee, a vegetal DNA analysis laboratory

DNA Gensee is a biotechnological laboratory working on plant DNA to offer you the possibility to identify the plant species that are present in your raw materials, ingredients or final products.

Such genetic analyses allow you to guarantee the botanical and geographical authenticity of the natural extracts you are using and to ensure traceability, security and quality.

DNA Gensee uses innovative molecular biological facilities allowing blind analyses on highly processed products thanks to the unique  genetic signature  of each plant. Playing a central role in a technical, scientific and botanical environment, DNA Gensee offers a complete range of services to give keys to solve your industrial problems.
