Opening of new laboratories in Cologne with 14 new employees

With help of many hands the laboratory in Düsseldorf has been moved to new laboratories in Cologne. By opening the European Custom Sequencing Centre in Cologne we have more than doubled the capacity of the labs in Düsseldorf.

The new location provides sequencing technology on 420m² and a friendly ambience for our employees. The existing team has considerably grown. We are happy that 14 well-trained staff members have started their jobs some months ago which will now actively support the team. Further positions will be created within the following months.

The new labs help us to extend our sequencing capacity. Cologne as a central location in Europe provides a quick and direct connection to the airport – and to our clients.



Düsseldorf ist jetzt in Köln…


Eröffnung neuer Labore in Köln mit 14 neuen Mitarbeitern

Mit großem Einsatz unserer Mitarbeiter meisterten wir den Umzug des Düsseldorfer Labors nach Köln. Mit der Eröffnung des European Custom Sequencing Centre in Köln haben wir die Kapazität des Labors Düsseldorf mehr als verdoppelt.

Der neue Standort bietet Sequenziertechnologie auf 420m² und ein freundliches Ambiente für unsere Mitarbeiter. Außerdem hat sich das Düsseldorfer Team deutlich vergrößert. Wir freuen uns über 14 neue Mitarbeiter, die in den letzten Monaten ausgebildet und eingelernt wurden und nun an das Team tatkräftig unterstützen. Weitere Arbeitsplätze werden während der nächsten Monate geschaffen.

Mit der Eröffnung der neuen Labore bauen wir unsere Sequenzierkapazitäten weiter aus. Köln, als zentraler Standort in Europa  bietet eine optimale Logistikanbindung zum Flughafen – und zu unseren Kunden.

I recently ordered light read bar codes. I am disappointed that the reads have been very poor compared to normal ones.

What's going on with my sequencing? Did moving your facilities to Germany effect the speed of processing the samples?

Within 2 weeks GATC managed to loose my samples twice! Although the sequencing results GATC provides are usually good, I am not so happy with the professionallity of managing the samples.
