Rapid Genomics - Is a DNA genotyping and genetic data analysis company providing tools for agricultural companies and researchers to quickly breed and grow ideal crops and livestock. DNA genotyping gives companies, researchers and farmers the ability to predict the value of a plant or animal even before the seed germinates or the animal is born. The system developed by RAPiD Genomics provides the ability to genotype at much lower cost and higher throughput, increasing gains and profit margins.
In the traditional genotyping technology, DNA is analyzed on a specialized device or “Chip”, where assays occur. Genotyping using these technologies is a costly, lengthy and low-throughput process. Sample preparation requires several days, and only a few samples can be processed in parallel, at a cost several hundred dollars per sample. RAPiD Genomics has shortened this process to less than a day, by developing a simplified and efficient procedure that parallelizes genotyping. This technology permits analysis of thousands of samples daily at one tenth of the cost of the existing technology. The company’s improved system also requires less DNA and eliminates the need for proprietary equipment.
RAPiD Genomics offers DNA breeding from beginning to end. Not just genotyping, but services to ensure that our customers can apply this genome knowledge to maximize genetic improvement of their products. The winning combination of speed, high-throughput, low-cost, proprietary methodologies and dedication to customer service sets the company apart.
