The Genetic Pathfinder
Tempogene is a solution provider for sustainable aquaculture and food safety. The company supports its commercial services by employing next generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics within epigenetics and diagnostics.
The company holds leading expertise within epigenetics, food safety and bioinformatics, and is located in contemporary lab and office facilities in ShareLab, Oslo Science Park.
Our History & Vision
Our vision is to contribute at enhancing quality and sustainability in aquaculture and in the food value chains, employing novel methods and strategies within epigenetics, sequencing based diagnostics and bioinformatics
The company was founded in February 2018.
Products & Services
Our epigenetic signatures are based on proprietary integrated processes within next generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics. The signatures are data driven insight into and imprint of the production regime and the biological maturation of the fish at important life phases. Hence, the is a tool pack to assist production and brand building.
DNA/RNA Sequence-based Diagnostics
Microbial sequences and resulting reported products are generated with next-generation sequencing and adequate bioinformatics. The ambition with our products is to assist commercial suppliers to provide documented safe food and beverage products, including also public suppliers of water. In addition, we aim at providing assistance to supervising authorities in these sectors.
