Our Vision: “To provide integrated solutions designed to increase efficiency and improve confidence, enabling our scientists to advance our understanding of the entire genome, thus leading to a better understanding of diseases globally.”
We understand that scientific discovery comes mostly in small steps. We also know that relentless, focused, attention to detail yields results and this must come from a mindset that is continuously challenging and fine-tuning procedures leading to the development of superior technologies and tools for our scientists. It is with this vision that we have chosen our portfolio of products for genomic studies.
Our partnerships with leading Global Biotechnology Companies such as Quanta Bio, DeNovix, Biotium, Orflo, Kurabo, Lucigen (Epicentre), BioMolecular Systems (formally known as Corbett Research), & LGC Biosearch Technologies all innovative developers and manufactures of life science tools and integrated systems for large-scale analysis of genetic variation and function, have been chosen to enable our scientists here in Australia to accelerate the collection, analysis, and application of biological information thus leading to new and better ways to improve health and prevent diseases in individuals and populations. Our broad portfolio of leading-edge sequencing and array-based solutions, qPCR technologies, DNA/RNA fragment analysis, address a range of genomic complexity and throughputs, enabling researchers to select the best solution for their scientific challenge.
Gene Target Solutions has a flexible, consultative approach in dealing with all our scientists’ pre-sales, sales and after sales requirements and are committed to providing integrated solutions designed to increase efficiency and improve confidence. We pride ourselves on the level of interest we take in learning about our client’s direction, the problems that they face and the implication of those problems and then ultimately working with our client to find a solution to meet their needs. We do this with our scientists in universities, hospitals, medical research institutes, Government Institutions like the CSIRO and Departments of Primary Industries as well as Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Veterinary and Agricultural Companies.
At Gene Target Solutions, we take it very seriously when we say that our responsibilities to our clients do not end after we have supplied them their products.
Having graduated from The University of NSW with a Bachelor of Science Degree with Honours in 1985 and after a brief period in the Laboratory, Andrew embarked on a career as a professional salesperson in Life Sciences. With a keen interest in the area of Molecular Biology and Genomics and at a time when these fields were rapidly advancing, Andrew enjoyed the challenges working with the Start-up teams with companies like Life Technologies (GIBCO/BRL) and Corbett Research and with the introduction of the Qiagen Portfolio of Purification Technologies into the Australian Marketplace.
To be successful in this industry, he maintains that you have to enjoy working with people and continually strive to bring solutions to our scientists to improve efficiency and improve confidence with quality innovative products, quality people and quality service and this is reason why he established Gene Target Solutions in 2009. Away from work, Andrew enjoys spending time with his family, friends and his horses, music, and anything where some form of exercise is involved including squash and running.

Bronwen Roy – Field Applications Specialist
Bronwen has a strong history in medical and environmental microbiology. She holds a BSc Biomedical Science majoring in Microbiology, a MSc in Medical Microbiology, and has recently completed her PhD. Bronwen has 25 years’ experience working in NSW pathology, during which she developed her research skills by designing a range of in-house PCR assays including the first multiplex PCR assay to be used for the testing of bacterial pathogens in human stool samples. She has since expanded her knowledge base into the stimulating and innovative world of environmental sciences. Bronwen expanded her molecular skills while completing her PhD, using a combination of amplicon sequencing and whole genome sequencing to explore bee diseases, particularly RNA viruses and their ability to cross over from European Honeybees into native species. Concern with inter-species transmission of disease is not solely academic but can have very real practical implications. For instance, bees and other insect pollinators are extensively relied on in the production of many of the world’s major crops and ecosystems. Moreover, the potential for cross-species transmission is proving to be a generally hot topic in today’s Coronavirus world because COVID-19 seems to have crossed from bats into humans and then from population to population around the world. Having engaged with these and other research questions, Bronwen is keen to use her practical and theoretical skills to help researchers with similar interests in health, environmental, and agricultural fields.
