Warnex to Distribute Gendia's Tests in Canada

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Quebec-based bioanalytical company Warnex said today that it has agreed to become the exclusive distributor of molecular diagnostic tests for the Gendia network in Canada.
Gendia is an international lab testing network with over 50 labs in the US, Europe, and Australia, and it offers more than 2,000 different genetic tests. Its goal is to provide and improve access, cost effectiveness, and quality for diagnostic tests for rare genetic disorders.
Warnex CEO Mark Busgang said in a statement that the agreement will help “provide access to a vast portfolio of highly specialized genetic tests ... that are not readily available in Canada.”
