About the Services

The GenoEx platform is created to allow worldwide exchange of SNP data in efficient and secure way.

It provides two alternative services, depending on the customers’ needs:
limited Parentage SNP Exchange (GenoEx-PSE) and full Genomic Data Exchange (GenoEx-GDE).

GenoEx-PSE allows exchange of limited sets of SNPs - standardised for parentage analysis - to facilitate and streamline the activities carried out by organisations that are responsible and/or active in parentage integrity.

GenoEx-GDE is extended to full genotypes exchange, controlled fully by the data owners and it covers a variety of available genotyping chips.
