to advance humanity - inspire curiosity
It was not that long ago that a mouse was just a mouse. For the team at Ozgene, a mouse represents a way to advance humanity. Ozgene has become a company dedicated to exactly that, and we do it by inspiring curiosity within ourselves and our customers.
Today, Ozgene is one of the leading companies providing genetically customised mice for researchers around the world. In fact, 80% of our customers are located outside of Australia. Shipments leave the Ozgene facility almost daily for their destinations in the US, Europe, Asia, South America and New Zealand. Ozgene mice can be found in laboratories on almost every continent in small academic institutions to multinational pharmaceutical companies. They have been for nearly 15 years. The experience behind Ozgene doesn’t stop there.
CEO and Co-founder, Dr Frank Koentgen, and the Ozgene team have over 20 years of experience in the generation of genetically modified mice. It begins even before Ozgene was born when Dr Koentgen generated the first knockout mouse from the C57BL/6 mouse strain in 1993. Most recently, Ozgene patented the sequential cloning system.
