Genetic Analysis AS: Half-year report January–June 2023

OSLO, NORWAY, August 30, 2023 – Genetic Analysis AS ("GA" or "the Company") hereby publishes the half-year report for the second quarter and first six months of 2023. The half-year report is available as an attached file to this release and on the Company’s website ( Below is a summary of the report.

Ronny Hermansen, CEO of Genetic Analysis, comments:
“I am pleased to provide you with an update on the significant achievements and developments that have marked Genetic Analysis AS's second quarter of 2023. Our focus on global expansion and advancing the capabilities of the GA-map® platform has yielded favorable results. We have observed a 22 percent increase in sales revenues compared to Q2 2022, reaffirming our commitment and capacity to address the rapidly growing microbiome market. We have experienced some effects from the COVID pandemic with a few customers having built inventory during COVID to keep their deliveries up and running during the difficult times. During Q2 2023, GA was hit by customers building down these inventory levels which reduced sales by NOK 1,0 million. Despite this, GA delivered a 22 percent growth in the quarter. Adjusted for the inventory decrease, the sales growth would have been at 56 percent. This impressive growth has been enabled as a direct result of our new global distribution model.”
