As a pioneer in the genomic industry in China, Berry Genomics has established facilities and departments engaging in each segment of the genomic industry, including technology research and development, medical device manufacturing, clinical testing, genomic database integration, and professional genetic counseling. The company also invested in gene therapy.
- The company’s headquarter is located in Beijing.
- The company has 8 clinical laboratories, located in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Chongqing, Changsha, Qingdao, Fuzhou, and Hong Kong.
- The company’s certified medical device manufacturing facility in Hangzhou is the production base for reagents and instruments.
- In 2017, Berry Genomics announced to establish a digital life science park in Fuzhou. With more than 260,000 square meters, the park is designed to cover every segment of genomic industry, from technology development to medical device manufacturing, from genetic testing to disease treatment.
- The company established a subsidiary, Xcelom Limited, in Hong Kong in 2013, which obtained exclusively from Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) the IP portfolio covering non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT).
- Teaming up with Professor Tony Mok of CUHK, in 2015, the company established Sanomics Limited, a leading oncology company, providing safe and rapid cancer diagnose.
- In 2017, Berry Genomics created Berry Oncology focusing on cancer early detection and liquid biopsy. In April of 2018, Berry Oncology and the National Center for Science in Hepatocellular Carcinoma jointly announced the initiation of the prospective study to detect liver cancer at very early stage, i.e. the “PreCar” study.

Main Products and Embedded Core Technologies
Berry Genomics is committed to developing and providing the highest quality and cost effective diagnostic and screening tests to patients. This is exemplified in our efforts to obtain IVD license from the CFDA to give the clinicians the confidence to use these tests for their patients’ health and well-being. In 2015, Berry Genomics’ sequencer, NextSeq CN500, and NIPT reagent obtained the license. Many new products are currently in the process of license application.
Besides offering testing service directly, Berry Genomics supports more than 100 hospitals and centralized clinical laboratories in China to run these tests autonomously.
Our unique business model of service and product continues to meet the growing needs from China’s market.
Berry Genomics has built a professional sales and marketing team to serve over 2000 hospitals throughout mainland China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, providing tests to more than 1 million patients a year.
