Meet the Young CEO of a PCR Workflow Automation Company

02/10/2017 - 7 minutes

He is a young entrepreneur with a fast growing company. His software for the automation of PCR results interpretation in research laboratories has had a rocket start. Here’s his story!

“I was looking for an internship for my bachelor’s degree in computer science…” His story starts like so many others, but unlike most it took an unexpected turn. In 2013, after he had completed an internship for a Dutch diagnostics company, Wouter Uten walked away with the prototype of a software that could interpret PCR results, automatically.

Having recognized a need in the diagnostic industry for more automated laboratory workflows, he decided to bring his prototype to the market. Wouter then started looking around for a business partner. He found Tom Martens, and together they founded UgenTec in 2014.

We have caught up with Wouter to ask him all about Ugentec and its key software FastFinder.
