About us

Our goal is to make the human genome practically useful for life-altering decisions.

We invented the Universal Genetic Test, a breakthrough diagnostic intended for parents planning to start a family. The test won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award for Medicine, was named one of Scientific American's "Top 10 World Changing Ideas", and was featured in the New York Times. Our test is now prescribed by physicians for more than 2% of all births in the United States.
