The Institute of Applied Biotechnologies Inc. (IAB) has been established in 2005 with focus on research, development and the manufacturing of products for molecular biotechnologies. In 2014 NGS laboratories were set up and IAB became the provider of services for different types of NGS projects. Currently, IAB is a team of experts specializing in next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics, all under one roof to provide a complete NGS solution using state of the art technologies.
IAB provides a wide range of services for genomic analyses using “Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)” technologies. We use the most modern bioinformatics analytical procedures to process large genomic and genetic data for accurate and consistent interpretation of NGS results. We provide services to both public and private healthcare and research partners.
The mission of IAB is to become a reliable provider of innovative, scalable and flexible NGS services to meet the needs of customers involved in projects of different types and to enable researchers to explore DNA on a new scale, thus helping them to move their research to another level.
At the IAB laboratory, I have the opportunity to try working on the most modern sequencers. I prepare libraries using a number of procedures from samples of various origins, which makes my work interesting.
My task is to prepare NGS libraries according to various protocols, which gives me the opportunity to try new methods and enables constant professional growth. The main advantage of my position is working with a wide range of sequencers and the different types of samples from customers, which I enjoy a lot.
I enjoy diversity in my work. Firstly, I prepare NGS libraries according to various protocols, secondly, I test the functionality of IAB produced kits in the IAB control laboratory, and last but not least, I am responsible for the smooth operation of the IAB laboratory.
The scope of my work is to ensure the smooth operation of the IAB control laboratory and the administration associated with it. I also take care of the quality control of the received samples and actively participate in the preparation of NGS libraries.
Communication with new customers about their projects is the most interesting part of my work, as well as convincing them that the high amount of money they invest in sequencing projects will be returned to them in high data quality.
Sales Manager, Market Access
For me, the transfer of scientific know-how to commercial applications has always been an effective way to use new knowledge. The application of NGS methods in genomic analyses fulfills this idea of mine.
Head of laboratory
Challenges, new technologies, and their transformation into a real product in a dynamic company stacked with technologies used by technology experts, that is IAB. Impossible for one is an opportunity for me.
In my line of work, I have the opportunity to look in detail at the issues associated with sequencing. The main task of my work is to consult with IAB customers over their requirements. Subsequently, I create protocols for individual experiments.
Every bioinformatician scientist‘s dream is to analyze and create workflows for data of any kind and size generated by the most powerful sequencers in the world. Here, in the IAB company, the dream comes true.
Head of technical department
A small company, devoted people, in a world full of huge competitors and prices that are hard to challenge. Look like fighting a losing battle. But not. Ask our customers. Data quality, communication, delivery time, individual approach to each project. That is our way. Content at a glance.
