The Genetic Pathfinder
Tempogene is a solution provider for sustainable aquaculture and food safety. The company supports its commercial services by contemporary expertise and long standing experience in these fields and by employing next generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics to advance breeding and productivity and to safeguard food and beverages.
The company holds leading expertise within genomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and molecular food safety 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 consumer safety in the food value chains, employing leading expertise and experience in said fields together with the application of emerging novel methods within next generation sequencing, epigenetics 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 respond to production regime and reflect the biological integrity of the fish at important life phases. Hence, this is a tool pack to assist breeding, productivity and the building of consumer trust and brands.
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.
