The hosting of the ASDG 2017 Meeting has been made possible by the generous support of the following organisations.  Please visit our sponsorship options page to see how your organisation could support this conference.



IGENZ is an accredited medical testing laboratory located in Auckland, New Zealand.  The laboratory has an interest in targeted cancer testing and supplies services mainly for clinical diagnostics however is also involved in translational (applied) research.  Recently IGENZ purchased a genetic profiling laboratory to extend its testing scope.



BioDiscovery, Inc. is dedicated to the development of state-of-the-art software products for life science research as well as clinical applications. The company’s mission is to enable scientists to eliminate disease and suffering through novel application of computational technologies and translating these findings directly and rapidly to clinical use. BioDiscovery develops, markets and sells advanced software solutions for the analysis of data from high-throughput microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies.

BioDiscovery provides a full line of modular software packages built for power, versatility, and efficiency spanning image analysis, data processing, and advanced analysis of CNV, gene expression, sequence variation and methylation data. These products empower Biologists and Geneticists with sophisticated, yet highly usable tools to analyze and interpret their data and draw meaningful conclusions.  NxClinical is a multi-user database system for case review and reporting of genomic changes (CNV, SNV, AOH) with on-site or cloud-based deployment. Using standardized and automated processes, NxClinical increases overall productivity and consistency in the entire workflow from raw data to reporting for cytogenomics labs.  Nexus Copy Number is a highly flexible, user-friendly, platform-independent software for cohort analysis and visualization of genomic changes offering robust analytical tools for downstream analysis (comparison, clustering, gene enrichment and more).

Agena Bioscience is dedicated to advancing the impact of genomics in healthcare and precision medicine. Our highly sensitive and cost-effective mass spectrometry-based platform, the MassARRAY® System, is used globally in diverse fields such as cancer profiling for solid tumors and liquid biopsies, inherited genetic disease testing, pharmacogenetics, agricultural genomics, and clinical research.

Our mission is to equip genomic and clinical testing laboratories with practical solutions that increase productivity and decrease time to results. Whether assessing sample quality, screening samples for actionable mutations, or enabling routine genetic testing for tens to thousands of samples, our products and services help laboratories translate genomic discoveries into mainstream clinical practice.


Over the past 175 years, Carl Zeiss has gained a reputation for producing exceptionally high quality optical equipment and innovative technological solutions. However, we’re not just a microscope manufacturer; we provide value beyond price by offering our customers unique imaging solutions tailored to their particular application.

Together with our partner, MetaSystems, we offer specialised automated scanning and image analysis systems for cytogenetics, cancer genetics, pathology, microbiology, toxicology, forensic sciences and other applications.

Our combined range of light and fluorescence microscopes, high-throughput screening hardware and image-analysis software mean every aspect your process can be quickly and accurately captured and documented.

In recent years we have added our XCyting DNA Probes to the portfolio, with the initial aim of improving the performance of automated FISH scanning systems. These probes are proving extremely popular, and are now being used routinely in many labs around ANZ and the rest of the world.

Speak with us today; we’ll help make your sample visible.
