Why are Genics laboratories so unique? Quality Control
Our service laboratories are ISO17025 Accredited and staffed by leaders in their field
For example, only Shrimp MultiPath™ has DNA, RNA and reverse transcription (RT) efficiency quality controls for every sample in every PCR well. This gives clients 100% confidence that the DNA and RNA were intact and extracted using quality procedures and that chemistry used in the RT and PCR process are of the finest quality. These design features lead to reduced testing cost for clients, faster data turnaround times and data you can trust.
As part of Genics Services Laboratories ongoing commitment to the highest possible quality standards, we participate in Proficiency or Ring Testing programs. This is where an independent assessor supplies blinded/coded samples to a range of diagnostic testing laboratories, including Genics Service Laboratories, where we use Shrimp MultiPathTM.
In our most recent July 2021 Assessment Report, Genics Service Laboratories passed 100% of assays when testing for WSSV and YHV-1.
Simultaneous pathogen screening
No other testing platform offers simultaneous detection of 13 pathogens in your sample in one PCR well, whilst also including in situ quality control assays at the same time. This has been achieved by the use of proprietary Genics total nucleic acid extraction which is the RNA plus DNA component combined.
It translates to simultaneous detection of both DNA and RNA pathogens in your tissue samples allowing non-bias quantitative results of loading of one pathogen compared to another within your same tissue sample.
Genics has developed the world’s only commercially available process that controls for well-to-well variation in highly plexed PCR. This is fundamental to our unrivalled consistency of detection across multiple pathogen targets from any one sample.
This means Shrimp MultiPath™ is unmatched in its ability to monitor quality control giving farmers 100% confidence in the data supplied.
Game Changing Technology
Underpinning Genics’ solutions suite is Shrimp MultiPath™, Shrimp MultiPath Xtra, ShrimpID, DeepDive Histopathology and MultiScore. Our technology is the most sensitive data-driven health management tool available today.

What our other clients say about us
“Our team at Kona Bay Indonesia are very impressed with Genics approach to data-driven decision making helping our facilities produce healthy, robust locally grown Indonesian Kona Bay broodstock that are SPF. Their helpful team give us confidence through designing statistically significant health sample programs and providing training in sampling for pathogen testing. Shipping is always fast, and the paperwork simple. Thank you Genics”.
“Results from Genics Shrimp MultiPath provided us with trusted information about our animal’s health allowing us to make important data-driven management decisions. Ultimately, the data provides us with a competitive advantage and when combined with very good value for money and excellent customer service we’ll happily call on Genics for further insights into our animal health”.
“Genics are an expert team providing complete Shrimp Health solutions to our industry that add genuine value customised to each business. Their proprietary Shrimp MultiPath platform provides unrivalled quality controlled data for multiple pathogen detection – something that is not available anywhere else in the world. I would happily recommend Genics to anyone requiring Shrimp Health Solutions”.
“With the aim of increasing shrimp production on our farms in Indonesia and better understanding the health of our shrimp, I turned to Genics for testing using Shrimp MultiPath. After a simple tissue sampling process, our samples were sent to Australia with test results ready within 48 hours of receiving the samples in the lab. The results helped our team understand how we can further improve animal health leading to stronger and disease resistant shrimp in future harvests. Also, a bonus, is the data showing that we can improve water quality management on our farms leading to healthier shrimp”.
“As a repeat customer, I am constantly impressed how Genics data allows me to make crucial data-driven decisions leading to improved farm performance. We have used Shrimp MultiPath a number of times as a mechanism to better understand the overall health of our shrimp. This in turn helps our farm reduce risk of disease, lower costs and increase productivity”
“I wanted to let you know of how happy we are with Genics Shrimp MultiPath. The results have definitely given us solid peace of mind and confidence in our business. I wish more of Indonesian farmers are able to enjoy the benefits of Genics technology in the future“.
“For me, Genics’ Shrimp MultiPath technology is unsurpassed in its ability to detect pathogens early, mitigate disease and provide certainty about our animal’s health. This means that despite the global pandemic, we’re on a fast-track to improved viability and growth. Additionally, Genics customer service has provided us with animal data quickly, allowing us to make informed management decisions with confidence”.
“Genics with their ShrimpID solutions suite provided us with a practical mate allocation plan that maximised genetic diversity of our progeny. We have seen a massive improvement in nauplii production already! Incredible results, powerful data. We look forward to working with Genics to continually improve on our breeding program and high-quality post-larvae offerings to Ecuadorian Shrimp Producers”.
“Genics new Shrimp MultiPath Xtra heralds a new era in pathogen detection, specifically around the detection of Decapod iridescent virus 1, DIV-1. As a vet, I can recommend Shrimp MultiPath Xtra to farmers wanting peace of mind and security when it comes to detecting pathogens on their farm”.
“In terms of PCR for the diagnosis of shrimp diseases, I think Dr. Melony Sellars (CEO Genics) is the highest authority in the world, I don’t know anyone who gives me as much confidence in this topic as she does”.
“Genics have been fantastic to work with, helping us to design a sampling plan to maximise value for money with our pathogen screening and ensure we would be in a position to make informed management decisions based on the data. We are very happy with their service and the Shrimp MultiPath output. What a great company to help service the pathogen screening needs of our global shrimp industry.”
“Genics is a one-stop shop for diagnostics. They are collaborative, flexible and reliable diagnostic partners. I enjoy working with the Genics team!” ,
“I am very satisfied with Genics services and results: Availability, professionalism, quality of the work done, easy reading of the result report, trust in the produced results!”
“The Penaeus monodon ShrimpID panels now available at Genics have been fundamental to the success of our company’s selective breeding programs since 2010. They have enabled us to maximise our genetic diversity year after year, and facilitate smart breeding choices that have delivered selected lines with trebled production performance in ponds compared side by side with unselected lines.”
“Using ShrimpID and Shrimp MultiPath combined (called Enduro) Genics were able to help our farm in Ecuador determine the pedigree of our stock thus ensuring genetic diversity in our breeding program while also giving us important data on the health of our animals. This means we can better plan for the future knowing exactly what we need to put in place to ensure positive farm performance”.
“Really quick turnaround time. Impressive.”
