State of the art equipmentNovogenia uses the latest technologies, in order to ensure the best possible accuracy of the analysis.
ReagentsReagents are prepared in UV decontaminated chambers, so their contamination is prevented
Saskia - LaboratorySaskia is a laboratory assistant with a university degree in Molecular Bio-sciences from the University of Salzburg. She takes care of calibrations, routine and ISO Compliance.
DNA ExtractionThe DNA extraction is fully automated. The largest of the five DNA extraction robots can handle almost 200 saliva samples in two hours. The result is high quality pure DNA, which can be further processed.
Daniel - ManagementDr. Daniel Wallerstorfer is biotechnologist and he is the managing director of the laboratory and the group of companies. He is responsible for the scientific supervision and for the product development.
Routine processA full 384 well plate loaded with 75 customers DNA sample is prepared in a real-time cycle for analysis. The results of the genetic analysis are ready for interpretation 1.5 hours later.
Meeting roomInternational meetings and product training sessions will be held on webcam and flat screen TV. Difficult medical issues can be effectively discussed.
Liquid handlingRobots carry out pipetting steps, in order to avoid human errors. All reagents and plates are additionally barcoded, to prevent mixing the samples.
Extraction preparationCheek swabs are prepared for automated extraction. Nearly 200 samples are extracted in one run. Having five extractors, the total capacity is 100,000 swabs per month.
Eradication slopeThe remaining swabs are stored until the analysis is complete. If there is insufficient quantity or quality of the DNA obtained on the first attempt, the process is repeated with the second swab.
Maria - DesignMaria is an industrial designer with a university degree of the FH Joanneum Graz. She is in charge of packaging, design, and ISO compliance. Maria leads a team of six software developers.
Automated processingThrough an automated processing of the queue, the laboratory is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It can easily perform up to 50,000 analyzes per month.
Creative teamThe Novogenia team consists of young, creative people, having high quality demands and ambitious goals for the future of human genetics. We are always looking for new, valuable members.
Sample acceptanceUpon arrival, each sample is provided with a barcode, and the identity of the patient is kept encrypted. The processing is done in the lab with anonymous barcodes.
Daniela and Rene - LaboratoryDaniela is a geneticist responsible for the acceptance pf the samples, DNA extraction, preparation, equipment maintenance and routine processes. Rene is also a geneticist in charge of the routine and the new developments in the field of genetic testing and technology
Sample receiptCurrently, up to 5000 genetic samples per month are stored in analysis racks for further processing. Depending on the type of the analyses and the quality of the sample, the time from sample receipt to the dispatching of the results is maximum 14 days.
Florian - LaboratoryFlorian is a geneticist and managed the routine processes, software developments, scientific research and the establishment of new products and technologies.
Thomas - LaboratoryThomas is a geneticist and works in the area of routine diagnostics, sample acceptance, analysis and product development.

Genetic project work
Contract Lab: Do you have an idea for your own genetic analysis product, and you are looking for a laboratory that can do the lab analysis for you? Then you are looking in the right place.
Scientific genetic studies
The dedicated laboratory staff of Novogenia repeatedly deals with exciting issues regarding genetics and molecular biology. We are currently carrying out our most recent research studies "Efficient Slimming - Weight study" and "HNMT".
Automation and software development is our specialty!
For this reason, we always have four to eight software developers available to quickly and inexpensively carry out the project ideas. Talk to us about your project, and we will find a solution for you!
A baby dies every nine minutes in developing countries due to lack of vaccination against tetanus. Novogenia donates a lifesaving tetanus vaccination for every five genetic analysis, thus saving one life!
What are genes?
How do genes affect our health?
Experts estimate that every person carries about 2,000 genetic defects in themselves. A brief introduction to the world of genes, explains in more details how genes control our body and why genetic defects can cause diseases.
The Novogenia laboratory is one of the most modern and automated laboratories in Europe, and has numerous certifications and quality assurance systems that meet or exceed international standards.
The Novogenia GmbH was founded by Dr. Daniel Wallerstorfer in 2009, in Austria, and received in the same year the license for medical genetic testing from the Federal Ministry of Health.
Lifestyle diagnostic genetic testing
The genetic analysis around DNAnutriControl were specifically developed to slim through healthier nutrition and performance. IgE, IgE analysis and baby analysis are also possible!
Medical diagnostic genetic testing
The genetic analysis around DNAnutriControl helps in preventing, early detection and treatment of diseases and can assist you in neutralizing and centralizing congenital disease risks.
