Halotech DNA SL is a biotechnology company whose main focus is in the field of genetics.
The company stems from the association between Chromacell, a spin-off from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and Suan Biotech, the first Spanish venture capital firm specialized in biotechnology.
The four Doctors in Biological Sciences that established Chromacell, make up the R&D team that developed the Sperm Chromatin Dispersion (SCD) test. This patented technology allows the measurement of DNA fragmentation quickly, easily and without the need of complex laboratory equipment.
Based on the SCD technology, Halotech has developed and commercialized in vitro diagnostic kits to assess DNA fragmentation in human and animal sperm cells under the registered trademarks Halosperm® and Halomax® respectively.
Halotech is currently developing other products to measure DNA fragmentation in other cell types (leukocytes and bacteria) using the SCD technology.
Halotech operates strict quality controls (ISO 13485, AGEMED) in the development, manufacturing and commercialization of its products in over 50 countries around the world.
