NimaGen was founded in 2011 under the Biolegio Holding by Ruud van der Steen (CEO Biolegio) and Joop Theelen (former Application- and Product Development Scientist at Applied Biosystems) with the desire to empower the DNA sequencing community.
As our animation below shows, NimaGen is located in Nijmegen, The Netherlands and our unique DNA helix in our company logo is based on the famous local landmark bridge called ''Waal Bridge'', crossing the Waal River, an important and busy shipping route connecting Rotterdam Seaport with the German Ruhr industrial region.
NimaGen specializes in life science applications in the molecular biology sector for both research and diagnostics. Our portfolio consists of quality products, covering three synergetic product lines aimed at supporting both traditional (gold-standard) and novel DNA sequencing workflows:
- Sanger Sequencing and Fragment Analysis (CE)
- Next-generation Sequencing
- Nucleic Acid Purification & Cleanup
