Biogazelle was founded in 2007 as a privately held Ghent University spin-off company.
Built upon a decade of experience we focus on 4 value propositions:
Facilitating your data analysis
Our flagship product qbase+ is the most powerful, flexible, and user-friendly real-time PCR data-analysis software on the market. It is based on the proven geNorm and qBase technology, enhanced with proprietary algorithms and time-saving features. qbase+ is truly accelerating your research, saving time to come to the right conclusions, and allowing easy publication of results.
Providing education and training
Biogazelle is committed to contribute to scientific progress by sharing knowledge gained through many years of pioneering research. Our top-level research, solid track record, and worldwide collaborator network keep us at the forefront of new developments. Our list of peer reviewed articles and book chapters and conference presentations is rapidly growing. It is our mission to share our knowledge with the research community.
We have trained several 100's of researchers, who have participated in our 2-day qPCR courses. We offer scheduled courses on a regular basis or customized at your institute.
Companies or research institutes using qPCR on a regular basis may get the support they need by entering a Biogazelle qPCR mentorship program. Such a program is entirely fit to the needs of the customer and depends amongst others on the number of qPCR users and the duration of the mentorship.
Running your experiments
We are an experienced service provider for quantitative PCR and digital PCR experiments.
ISO17025 accreditation is expected in 2014.
The Biogazelle service laboratory uses PCR for a wide range of applications
We have a wide range of references in the academic, top research and industrial market. We established expertise in the discovery, validation, and stability monitoring of biomarkers. Our core expertise is to design specific assays and to validate these in our lab. We can also provide assay audits in order to streamline and enhance your current workflow.
Biogazelle is at the forefront of digital PCR based research as it was one of the first European laboratories that had access to the technology. Furthermore Biogazelle has an agreement with Bio-Rad to act as a reference center for the QX100 digital droplet PCR (ddPCR) system in Europe. This is completely in line with Biogazelle's mission to address unmet needs through excellence in science and technology.
Supporting your R&D programs
We are internationally recognized for our front running knowledge in PCR workflows and data-analysis. We encourage collaboration with academic institutes, biotechnological and pharmaceutical companies in order to get more out of PCR experiments.
We offer our services in the frame of research partnerships, addressing the needs of the academic, life sciences and pharmaceutical market.
As an example, we have designed and validated more than 20.000 RT-qPCR assays representing the human transcriptome for our partner Bio-Rad.
We can help you in making robust assays for biomarker analysis. We are your preferred partner in setting up a companion diagnostics strategy, using PCR as the technology of excellence for molecular testing and easy corporation in a clinical diagnostics lab.
