Gentronix Ltd.

Gentronix was founded in 1999 as a spin-out from The University of Manchester to commercialise patented new technology for the early identification of genotoxic carcinogens. This technology is now available in a kit format, known as GreenScreen HC, for the early genotoxicity screening of new drug compounds.

Developed in a simple microplate format requiring less than 1mg of compound, the assay is easily automated using standard laboratory equipment. Published results and trial data demonstrate a unique combination of exceptionally high sensitivity and specificity, making GreenScreen HC the first in vitro mammalian cell assay truly suitable for early candidate screening.
