MRC-Holland b.v. is a privately owned biotechnology company located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, founded in 1985 by Dr. Jan Schouten. The main focus of the company is to develop new products for DNA analysis, based on the MLPA technique. These products are sold to laboratories worldwide and are used to find the cause of genetic diseases, like deafness or Duchenne muscular dystrophy, as well as to decide on the most optimal therapies for specific cancer patients. The MRC-Holland company currently has about 80 employees. The company has no connections with the MRC institutes of the UK and The Gambia.
With the aim to share its profits with the less privileged, the MRC-Holland Foundation was founded in December 2011, and is headed by Maureen Schouten-Wijdenbosch.
