Finding innovative

OMICS solutions

OhmX.bio provides a complete R&D platform to help our customers resolve their biological questions trough cutting-edge technology in different –omics fields. We provide start-to finish project management from sample preparation to customized data analysis and data reporting possibilities to the global research community in the field of transcriptomics, translatomics, proteomics and (epi)genetics. Novel approaches are constantly evaluated and incorporated into our service portfolio. Our projects are collaborations between an experienced team of wet-lab scientists, bioinformaticians and complementing expert profiles in order to bring the best solutions forward.

 

We are a Belgian company founded in Ghent in 2019, as a spin-off initiative of the Ghent University. We can profit from a built academic expertise in high throughput analysis methods. We meet the high demand for specialized technologies to measure different -omics levels and their distinct modifications (DNA/RNA epigenetics and post-translational modifications).

 

We offer state-of-the-art solutions to aid our customers to provide these genome-wide maps, built on the latest sequencing (Illumina and Oxford Nanopore) and mass spectrometry technologies. Currently, we focus on unravelling genome-wide maps of translated mRNA, a technique called ribosome profiling or RIBO-seq. We constantly develop our service portfolio using novel technologies as currently the direct DNA and RNA sequencing using the Oxford Nanopore Technology and single cell transcriptomics solutions (e.g. 10x genomics) in close collaboration with our academic experts.
