GeneTex was founded in 1997 by three scientists with expertise in cancer research and infectious disease. Our office was in Texas, that’s why the company is named GeneTex. 10 years later, we opened a new manufacturing facility in Taiwan and then moved our office to California Irvine. GeneTex is proud to offer the highest quality antibody reagents supported by extensive research, development, and validation. We are committed to the highest standards of product performance, and our scientists are dedicated to the goal of accelerating your discovery. Currently GeneTex provides more than 55,000 products and primary antibody is the major product type. Last year, GeneTex also engages RNAi knockdown and CRISPR/Cas9 technology to validate antibody specificity.
