We've experienced the significant gaps in our collective ability, as a medical and research community, to access and understand disease-defining biology when it matters most. To address this, we've developed a simple blood test uncovers actionable disease-defining transcriptional biology.  Our unique genome-wide platform profiles circulating chromatin and the DNA methylome to deliver resolution into the dynamic activity of individual genes and pathways in diseased tissues from just 1mL of plasma.  By partnering with developers of new medicines and advancing our own diagnostic tests, we’re working towards a world where new medicine development efforts succeed more frequently, and where anyone can receive a minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment that’s precise to the biology of their disease.
