(Oslo, 20 August 2021) Genetic Analysis AS (“GA” or “the Company”) hereby publishes the interim report for the period January 1 – June 30, 2021. The interim report is available as an attached file to this release and on the Company’s website. Below is a summary of the report.
Genetic Analysis CEO Ronny Hermansen comments:
“GA accomplished essential milestones during the period by being granted patents in US, Japan, India and the EU. In June, we successfully completed the next generation of the GA-map® Dysbiosis Test with a CE mark. The next generation includes a built-in bacteria functionality reporting algorithm that will further reduce run-time for the lab. We expanded our distribution network with Eagle Bioscience in the US and reached a significant agreement with a lab chain in Germany to sell the GA-map® platform installation package.
Finally – GA, together with the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, is developing the world’s first complete database of reference genomes, HumGut, a collection of about 30,000 genomes, covering the broad diversity of bacterial genomes found in the human gut. Mapping and unlocking the genes present in a healthy gut is instrumental for developing new diagnostics and better treatment regimes. We will actively use this powerful search engine and database to identify novel gut signatures which we can plug onto our GA map® technology platform to develop new innovative diagnostic markers within the microbiome field.”
