About Us

The inception of Gentueri was sparked by a clear need identified in 2012: the gap between the advanced laboratory processing of biological samples and the onsite collection methods employed by crime scene investigators. This disparity, recognized during our founder’s tenure on a panel formed by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), led to the birth of an idea.

The concept was simple yet revolutionary: a device that could collect and process swabs with the same efficacy as blood tubes in laboratories.

This idea materialized as the SwabSaverTM in 2015, a patented innovation marking our foray into the realm of non-invasive sample collection and preservation. Fast Forward Forensics, our initial venture, laid the groundwork for what has become Gentueri Inc. The name Gentueri comes from the word “Tueri,” Latin for protection, encapsulating the company’s mission to safeguard genetic material from collection to laboratory analysis.

By 2020, the onset of the pandemic tested Gentueri’s adaptability and resilience. The company’s response was swift and impactful, leveraging our expertise to supply almost two million COVID-19 collection kits to the Midwest, aiding a community in dire need with the painless cheek or buccal swab to test for COVID-19. This trial period transformed Gentueri, catalyzing our growth and enabling us to enhance our manufacturing capabilities exponentially. Our success during this critical time was a testament to our team’s dedication and the robustness of our technology.

Today, our products are at the forefront of non-invasive sample collection, offering solutions for forensics, genetic testing, nutrition, and animal diagnostics, among others. The potential applications for our technology continue to expand, mirroring the growth of the field itself.

Our vision for the future is clear: to continue innovating and expanding our product lines to meet the evolving needs of genetic testing and diagnostics.

At Gentueri, we understand the importance of quality in biological sample collection. Our devices are designed to ensure that laboratories receive clean, well-preserved samples ready for automated processing.

As we move forward, we remain committed to our mission of providing the complete package for collecting biological samples. Gentueri is your trusted partner in noninvasive sample collection and preservation. Together, we are setting new standards in the field, driven by innovation, quality, and a commitment to the future of genetics.
