About us

Geneius Laboratories Ltd was established in 2007 by a team of leading microbiologists from Newcastle University, to utilise and develop internationally-recognised expertise in advanced DNA technology.

Since then we have become a market-leading analytical and advisory service provider, gaining extensive market knowledge and an excellent reputation in the food, beverage and dairy industries. In addition to providing a wide range of high quality routine testing services, we also deliver in-house developed DNA-based testing methods, including our UKAS accredited PCR based Geneius rapID® tests for pathogen detection and meat speciation. Our Specialist Microbial Identification Services apply the powerful technique of DNA sequencing (Geneius microID and Geneius microST) for the identification and monitoring of contaminants. With this extensive range of capabilities, Geneius are recognised as a pioneering independent solution provider and the UK market leader in investigative microbiology using bespoke DNA analysis. This reputation has been endorsed by Richard Reed, co-founder of Innocent Drinks, who is now an investor in the business.
