Genesis Reference Laboratories (GRL) was founded in 2015 in Orlando FL. Since then, it has changed management to involve the dynamic team that runs it now. In the beginning, there were only two lab staff and one accessioner, where the majority of testing consisted of toxicology. Since then, we have grown to over 150+ employees nationwide and are still expanding.
Over our short history, the leadership built a collaborative and dominating team that turned into the dynamic company you see today. This exceptional growth predominantly happened during the COVID-19 pandemic. And today, we offer a comprehensive testing menu. This push helped us become the leading example of excellence in our industry. Our team is built to bring accurate and quick results to ensure that every patient gets the best individualized treatment. The mission of Genesis Reference Laboratories is combining accuracy with integrity to supply healthcare professionals with clinically actionable data, in order to improve patient outcomes.
