About Us

NewGene is an ISO 15189 accredited provider of molecular diagnostics using high throughput sequencing and genotyping technologies.

The demand for testing of genetic variation in patients is growing rapidly. This is being driven by advances in medical genetics coupled with the growth in personalised medicine which involves the determination of a patient’s biological characteristics in order to select the most effective therapy regime.

Established through a partnership between the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle University, NewGene is a pioneer in developing, validating and delivering molecular diagnostics using the latest high throughput sequencing and genotyping technologies.

NewGene’s core team has a background in molecular genetics within the NHS. By combining this clinical and laboratory expertise with the use of high throughput sequencing platforms, NewGene is able to deliver a high quality, fast turnaround service at an attractive price.

NewGene works in collaboration with clinicians and scientists to deliver optimal services to regional and national NHS Trusts and overseas healthcare providers. Critical to the service are the NewGene HCPC registered Clinical Scientists who are qualified to approve clinical reports.
