About the Services

The GenoEx platform is created to allow worldwide exchange of SNP data in an 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, with sets 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, access controlled fully by the data owners
and it covers a variety of available genotyping chips.
