Genics value proposition

Early detection

Our Shrimp MultiPath™ and Pork MultiPath™ technology focuses on early pathogen detection before you see the first signs of disease. Our testing detects pathogens weeks before your animals show the first signs of being sick.

360 approach

With Genics MultiPath, DeepDive, and ShrimpID technology, supported by our team of global experts, we’re able to customize your 360-degree health plan to include selective breeding, PCR pathogen detection, and histopathology.

Reduced risk

Genics MultiPath technology dramatically reduces the cost of pathogen testing by identifying multiple pathogens with a single test. MutiPath empowers informed management decisions that mitigate disease risk and maximize yield.


Our technology is unsurpassed in its ability to co-detect multiple animal pathogens. Its sensitivity and specificity are equal or superior to current gold standard diagnostic methods that typically detect only a single pathogen with each test.

Fast results

All Genics services are performed in ISO17025 Accredited Laboratories by qualified laboratory personnel and veterinarians. MultiPath testing includes DNA and RNA quality controls for every sample. With all our solutions, we deliver results rapidly with fast data turnaround, even on large numbers of samples.

Increase your farm’s profits
We’re focused on the commercial success of your business

Genics constantly delivers increased profitability and growth for commercial farms. In a recent example, Shrimp MultiPath™ increased the growth of animals at a commercial farm across their 1 ha ponds stocked at 70/m2, by over 10%.

These commercial results support the foundational paper authored by Genics CEO, Dr. Sellars et al* showing a USD$1,000 investment in pathogen detection resulted in an increase in production of USD$52,000/ha.

Dr. David KawahigashiVannamei 101, USA

“With the aim of increasing shrimp production on our farms in Indonesia and better understanding the health of our shrimp, I turned to Genics for testing using Shrimp MultiPath. After a simple tissue sampling process, our samples were sent to Australia with test results ready within 48 hours of receiving the samples in the lab. The results helped our team understand how we can further improve animal health leading to stronger and disease resistant shrimp in future harvests. Also, a bonus, is the data showing that we can improve water quality management on our farms leading to healthier shrimp”.

Shrimp MultiPath™ solutions (Shrimp MultiPath™ and MultiPath Xtra) detects up to 14 commercially impactful pathogens of shrimp simultaneously (including DIV-1). MultiPath is a PCR based technology with unrivalled test sensitivity, specificity and data turn-around times for multiple pathogen detection. MultiPath generates digitized pathogen prevalence and quantitative load data at scale, and is compatible with digital farm management solutions.


Pathogens detected by Shrimp MultiPath™ or MultiPath Xtra include:

Decapod iridescent virus 1, DIV-1, White spot syndrome virus (WSSV), Yellow head virus (YHV) variants 1-7, Taura syndrome virus (TSV), Infectious myonecrosis virus (IMNV), Laem-Singh necrosis virus (LSNV), Hepatopancreatic parvovirus (HPV), Monodon baculovirus (MBV), Infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV), Pir A toxin gene & Pir B toxin gene (AHPND/EMS; Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease/Early mortality syndrome), Gill associated virus (GAV), Mourilyan virus (MoV), and Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP). Shrimp MultiPath differentiates between all 7 YHV variants using independent variant specific targets. HPV is also known as Hepatopancreatic densovirus (HDV). GAV is also known as YHV2.



Shrimp MultiPath™ solutions performance has been assessed and validated by Third Party ISO17025 assessors which follow the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) Manual for Validation of Diagnostic Assays.


Testing Facilities and Turn-around time

MultiPath is run in Genics Service Laboratories in Australia that are ISO17025 Third Party Accredited. Shipment of samples to Australia from most regions of the world takes ~3 days by courier and data is available within 48 hours of sample arrival at the laboratory. Genics provide the required documentation to ship Shrimp samples into  Australia in 70% laboratory grade ethanol.
