The Novogenia GmbH was founded by Dr. Daniel Wallerstorfer in 2009, in Austria, and received in the same year the license for medical genetic testing from the Federal Ministry of Health.
In the same time, the DNA Plus Center for Human Genetics UG (limited liability) was founded in Germany under the control of Novogenia GmbH.
Novogenia and DNA plus initially offered only genetic tests for health care, but expanded their portfolio with lifestyle genetic testing in the field of Nutrigenetics and weight control. Novogenia also expanded over the years in the area of neonatal screening across Europe.
In 2011, the Novogenia GmbH created the Novogenia laboratory network. Within a short time, more than 100 medical genetic laboratories were added to this network, with a portfolio of more than 3000 various medical genetic testing.
In 2012, the Novogenia GmbH took over the worldwide pioneer in preventive genetic diagnostics, GENOSENSE Diagnostics GmbH, with more than eleven years of experience in this area.
In 2013, Novogenia prepared again to extend its portfolio in new business areas, such as dietary supplements based on genetic data. This project was launched in 2014.
Since 2014, we now differentiate between the two brands DNAnutriControl (lifestyle diagnostic genetic testing) and DNAhealthControl (medical genetic testing), which we sell throughout Europe in cooperation with our partners.
The Novogenia Group is one of Europe’s market leaders in lifestyle and genetic diagnostics and a global pioneer in preventive genetic diagnostics.
