About Floragenex

Since 2007, Floragenex has been a leader in genomics and next-generation DNA sequencing. From the early days when generating a million sequence reads was considered impossible to the 200M read runs of today, we have been helping scientists by providing expert guidance and support in genomics research.

As genomics research evolves, we do as well. At Floragenex, we continue to invest in genomics technologies which allow our clients to answer ever more complex questions in life sciences. Our guiding principle is to listen to our customers and continually improve our services to make sure our clients have the tools and results they need to advance their research. 

With offices in Portland, Oregon and strategic partners around the world, our team at Floragenex is able to take on your most interesting (and challenging) genomics projects!

We look forward to working with you soon.
