ATL geographically extended its services to Europe as well as the Middle East and North Africa.
  • In 2002, ATL established and validated a new R&D facility for “Genomic Research”.
  • In 2003, ATL and a Turkish biotechnology company, Medimiks, decided to merge their companies and hence transferred shares to each other: These companies began working together in the field of biotechnology and provide advanced technology and complete product mix to IVF and genetics laboratories.

  •  In 2007, ATL-Medimiks transferred its know-how in microarray technology to Medimiks and participated in Medimiks’ EUREKA project titled “Development and commercialization of microarray for molecular karyotype by CGH Array”: This R&D project was completed in 2009.
  •  Starting in 2010, ATL-Medimiks changed its focus to “Transcriptomics”, which helps to understand the genome expression profile on oocyte and sperm competency in severe infertility cases which is around 17% of the all infertile cases
