About Rapid Genomics
Our first-in-class genotyping applications lead the way in accuracy, reliability, and speed.
But we think beyond the technology that makes us successful. There’s a difference between the experience that drives our mission and the inner motivations that keep us moving forward.
Our goals are simple: 1) Strengthen the industries that keep people healthy and well-fed and 2) Gain a deeper understanding of evolutionary biology to preserve our planet. We’re enabling better crop yields, healthier farm animals, and advanced genetic research for a better life for everyone.
We’re as excited as we’ve ever been to keep pushing. Let’s go further together.
In April 2022, Rapid Genomics was acquired by LGC Biosearch Technologies.
Mark Dearden, Managing Director, LGC Biosearch Technologies, said, “We are excited to secure Rapid Genomics, which is an elegant fit with our core purpose of Science for a Safer World. This acquisition will enable future growth and development of our NGS high-throughput offerings in the agrigenomics space. Rapid Genomics is an excellent complement to our existing NGS and PCR genomics capabilities and we look forward to bringing the combined offering to our customers.”
Leandro Neves, CEO and President of Rapid Genomics, said, “We are honoured to join the LGC team. Our companies have worked together for several years with great synergy and shared vision. The access to LGC’s expertise in the field and broad technologies will have a multiplier effect on our ability to provide innovative solutions to our customers. We are excited to be part of LGC and leverage this opportunity to benefit our employees and customers.”
At Rapid Genomics, the key to improving the future is within the secrets of the genome. Our mission to expand global access to the technologies required for uncovering those secrets with the highest standards of accuracy and reliability. We provide flexible solutions to a range of commercial and research interest focused on agriculture, veterinary pharma, healthcare, and evolutionary biology. Our customers partner with us to advance their goals and, ultimately, strengthen the industries that do everything from producing our food to curing disease.
