Why are we called STACS DNA?

“STACS DNA” stands for Sample Tracking And Control Software for DNA Labs. What we do is in our name!


STACS DNA has its origins in Anjura Technology Corporation, which was founded in 1992 to provide information technology consulting services to clients in private and public sectors. One of their clients, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), required software to drive its DNA data bank, and there was nothing on the market to meet their requirements. After successfully creating and implementing a solution for the RCMP, Anjura recognized the need within the DNA community and went on to commercialize that software, licensing it to forensics labs across North America.

Anjura’s consulting arm was acquired by CNC Global in 2005, at which time STACS DNA was founded as a separate company to focus exclusively on refining and supporting processing software for DNA labs. More recently, the company is working with laboratories in response to the explosion in health care testing, the advent of genomics and the dawn of the age of personalized medicine.
