Management and Staff

The management of the company is led by Dr. B. Siebertz and M.J.Schatzl. Other scientists are also a part of our specialist staff.


Galantos Genetics is a special laboratory run by academics that not only provide quality service and genetic testing, but also creates new improved forms of genetic and forensic tests. The genetic tests are carried out in Mainz; the new research and creation of tests are a close cooperation with the American based company Independent Forensics. All tests that are carried out by Galantos Genetics are subject to strict protocols and SOPs (standard operating procedures). The company fulfils all usual German and European standards. Our Project Manager Dr. Karl Reich is accredited by the American Standards of the NFSTC the AABB (American Association Of Blood Banks) the DOH (State of New York, Department of Health) and the FBI.


Galantos Genetics has contacts to family psychologists and family counselors, medical specialists, child services workers, lawyers and other related institutions and professions that are necessary for child, family and paternity issues and we are constantly supplementing these networks with qualified personnel. We believe by offering contact to these services, we are taking a responsible stance in making sure our clients have the opportunity to access the appropriate services should the need arise once the client receives the test results.
