What our clients say about us

“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”.

Ricardo SolaNaturisa S.A. Ecuador

“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”.

Bolivar Pena - Administrator Genesis, Ecuador

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”.

“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.”

“Really quick turnaround time. Impressive.”

Dustin R. Moss, PhD,Oceanic Institute, Hawaii, United States

“Using ShrimpID and Shrimp MultiPath combined, 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”.
