Institute of Applied Biotechnologies Inc. (IAB) has been established in 2005. The company is focusing on research, development, and the manufacturing of products for molecular biotechnologies. In 2014 the NGS laboratories in Olomouc were set up and IAB started to provide also the sequencing services. IAB offers to customer preparation of NGS exome, transcriptome, and genome libraries from various types of RNA/DNA samples originating from human, plant, animal, fungi, and other tissues. Final sequencing is realized on sequencing platforms such as NovaSeq, NextSeq, MiSeq, and iSeq.
IAB laboratory team in Olomouc covers six people who are experienced in life science.
The head of the laboratory team Dr. Martin Kašný has long-term experiences in molecular-biological techniques which he obtained during his previous academic carrier at Masaryk University (Brno) and Charles University (Prague). He is responsible for managing of laboratory work, project design, and presentation of results related to realized services.
Our application specialist Msc. Adam Novotný studied at Masaryk University, from where he received his master’s degree. He is responsible for project design, communication with customers and training on new technologies
Senior research Dr. Katarína Holubová studied at Palacký University at Olomouc, where she took her master and doctor degree. She has a long-term experiences with many of molecular-biological methods and now she is responsible for preparation of different types of libraries and NGS sequencing with specialization on whole exomes sequencing.
Senior researcher Msc. Laura Ambrozová studied at Masaryk University, where she got her master degree and is finishing her doctor degree. She acquired experiences in molecular-biological techniques during her studies and working in private medical institution. Now she is responsible for preparation of different types of libraries and NGS sequencing with specialization on whole genomes sequencing
Junior researcher Msc. Karolína Šenková studied at Palacký University where she earned her master degree in biochemistry. She is well-practiced in molecular-biological methods. Now she participates in library preparation, NGS sequencing and is responsible for control laboratory and administration.
Junior researcher Msc. Adéla Brusová studied at Masaryk University, where she took her master’s degree and received many experiences in life science. Now she participates in library preparation, NGS sequencing and is responsible for quality control of the samples.
We are proud of our equipment which consists of many Illumina instruments and Illumina´s flagship NovaSeq.
