In 2008, AGOWA GmbH - the Berlin-based genomic services specialist which is now part of the LGC Group - is celebrating its 15th anniversary.
AGOWA milestones In 1993 AGOWA was founded in Berlin, Germany. AGOWA looks back on long-standing experience in large-scale sequencing gained in international and national genome projects. In 1998 the company underwent a change becoming a service provider offering comprehensive genomic services and products to a broader range of customers. Consequently three different service units were established: Custom DNA sequencing, genomic services and nucleic acid preparation. Moreover field sales activities were intensified resulting in a constantly growing customer base worldwide. In 2002 AGOWA was in fact the first company which introduced the overnight DNA sequencing service in Europe. Since 2004 AGOWA's quality management system has been certified by DIN EN ISO 9001:2000. With effect of December 2005, AGOWA has been part of the LGC Group.
AGOWA has reported consistent business growth over the past 15 years and, in line with its strategy to maintain and develop the quality of the services it provides, AGOWA moved to larger state-of-the-art premises in Berlin in December 2007. The relocation, especially of the labs, was executed in two steps. The first part, i.e. the genomics and sequencing labs and the administration moved on 14th December. One week later the nucleic acid preparation and extraction unit moved to the new facilities. At any time during the relocation it was assured that any customer orders were processed accordingly. At the new premises AGOWA welcomes two new staff members, which leads to 30 employees in total and the overall lab and office space doubled to 1,100 square metres. AGOWA will celebrate the 15th anniversary and relocation with a grand opening and anniversary party at the new premises in spring 2008. Please find the new AGOWA contact details on www.agowa.de
