GENIS is a biotechnology company headquartered in Siglufjörður, Iceland. We strive to discover, develop and commercialize novel and life changing products, supplements and medical devices derived from crustacean exoskeletons. The GENIS team has been developing cutting edge research on the production of chitin, chitosan and short chain chitosan for two decades. Our mission is to leverage this accumulated body of world class scientific research with the intent of providing life altering benefits for individuals.
Our production is supervised by a team of experienced professionals. All of our production processes are designed to ensure the highest product quality and are based on GMP standards. Our policy when it comes to production is to deliver greater value to the local society with less input, using resources in a sustainable way while minimizing environmental impact.
Applying cutting edge material and biological sciences in research and development is the driving force of GENIS. The main effort of our team of scientists is on the utility of aminosugars for human health. In-house product development goes hand in hand with functional testing which is in part outsourced to universities and contract research organizations.
