« GenEvolutioN stands for quality and scientific excellence. We offer only the best services and tools in line with the evolution of biological and technological progress; therefore, we are very careful with partnerships and the services we add to our portfolio. Our customers are increasingly demanding sensitization testing and it is gratifying that we now can offer them the high-performance GARD ™ technology, » says Francis Finot, founder and owner of GenEvolutioN.

The agreement gives GenEvolutioN the right to market and sell SenzaGen’s GARD  tests to customers looking for advanced technology providing reliable results. Through its accuracy and reliability, GARD™  improves the quality of customer’s decision-making and contributes to increased product safety in people’s everyday lives.

The agreement between SenzaGen and GenEvolutioN runs for three years with an option to extend for additional years.

About GARD™

 GARD™   consists of a group of tests for analyzing chemicals’ ability to start an allergic reaction in humans. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence. By analyzing hundreds of markers, GARD™ generates large amounts of data and delivers results with over 90 percent accuracy. This can be compared to today’s standard method – tests on animals – which only achieves 70-75 percent accuracy. The product portfolio consists of tests for skin and respiratory allergy: GARD skin, GARD air, GARDpotency and GARD skin Medical Device.
