We are transforming genetic testing
Genetic disorders are caused by a wide variety of DNA changes that, until now, have required different technologies to detect. Traditional methodologies biochemically extract a slice of the DNA and then sequence it. This approach has produced a vast number of different tests that are designed to detect specific DNA changes within certain limitations. Identifying the right test for the patient is often challenging. Further complicated by limited sensitivity and specificity, this leads to missed or delayed diagnoses and increased residual risk.
Our whole genome sequence (WGS) based methodology is shifting the genetic testing paradigm, overcoming the limitations of traditional technologies. We sequence the entire DNA and then slice the data in any number of relevant ways for analysis. With its ability to detect all major types of genetic variation, our Genomic Unity® testing methodology provides a better test at a lower overall cost to patients and payors.
Our interdisciplinary team of talented medical professionals, bioinformaticians, software engineers, information technology and operations professionals are leading the way to better genetic testing, one patient at a time.
