LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 19, 2015 — The increasing popularity of GeneSeek’s agrigenomic services in Canada, including the GeneSeek® Genomic Profiler and Igenity® Profile for Beef and Dairy Cattle, has led to the opening of Neogen Canada. Neogen’s new location will focus initially on further enhancing the access to GeneSeek’s genomic services for Canadian customers.
“It became increasingly obvious that we needed to expand our presence in Canada to provide our Canadian customers with the same easy access to advanced genomic services as our customers in the U.S.,” said Dr. Stewart Bauck, general manager of Neogen’s GeneSeek operations. “Our new location will provide our Canadian customers the same access to the technology, and also offer all the benefits of dealing directly with a Canadian location — including avoiding the requirements of shipping biological samples internationally, as well as invoicing in Canadian dollars.”
Effective immediately, GeneSeek’s Canadian customers can directly contact Neogen Canada on everything GeneSeek related, including the shipping of samples, billing, and technical support issues.
