Top-Bio company, founded on November 1st, 1995, specializes in developing and manufacturing selected reagents and products necessary for molecular genetic methods in basic and applied research, diagnostics, and other fields. It focuses on enzymes and other reagents required for studies of nucleic acids and amplifying DNA fragments using polymerase chain reaction.
Top-Bio arose as a spin-off company of the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. In the initial stage, it was part of the incubator of the Technology Center of the Academy of Sciences in Prague. In 2002 part of the company moved to Vestec near Prague and extended its manufacturing capacity. In 2015, Top-Bio transferred to a new building aimed at research and manufacturing operations, the “Molecular-genetic R&D Center,” close to the Biotechnology and Biomedical Center of the Academy of Sciences and Charles University (BIOCEV) in Vestec.
Top-Bio company is currently constructing two buildings close to the “Molecular-genetic R&D Center.” This new infrastructure will bring new R&D opportunities to the area and address the problems with limited production capacity. The extended R&D Center should be finished in 2024.
