As part of Merck Millipore's (the life sciences tools division of Merck KGaA) strategy, it has been decided to stop supply of GeNei products and close the Merck Bangalore Site 02 - GeNei facility, said the company's spokeswoman.

GeNei was involved in the manufacturing of reagents, lab wares and chemicals, and was started by Dr P Babu in the eighties.

GeNei was later acquired by Merck in 2009, which was part of Sanmar Group, an Indian conglomerate MNC now valued at US $1 billion, headquartered in Chennai.

Sanmar's business sectors include chemicals, engineering, and shipping.
