CEO Ronny Hermansen comments
“Genetic Analysis GA-map® enables cost-efficient and reliable mapping and profiling of gut microbiota via In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) testing. In recent years research has placed the human microbiome as an essential part of our well-being. At the same time, many diseases and conditions have been linked to an imbalance in the gut microbiota composition. Genetic Analysis is currently the only company globally that offers a CE-marked standardized testing platform for microbiome analysis, the GA-map® Dysbiosis Test. GA has initiated an ambitious growth plan to rapidly grow the business over the next few years in the EU and US. We have proven our existing business model to molecular labs, and the Company is now ready, with the CE-marked GA-map®, to be commercialized in the current market for microbiota testing as well as to enter the market for companion diagnostics, where new markers will be developed on the platform in combination with microbiota altering drugs.”
