About Us

At Quantgene, we are determined to push the frontier of preventive medicine by bringing together the best minds in quantitative analytics, bioinformatics, next-generation sequencing, laboratory operations, and clinical evidence generation. Decades of experience in each field have taught us that no single field can move us into the future on its own: Data science requires new, deeper data; sequencing technology needs optimal procedures, chemistry, and processing; and clinical trials need to be more strategically designed to meet the objectives of preventive medicine.

Quantgene advances its position as the technology leader in single-molecule, cell-free DNA profiling by continuously expanding its platform across the best clinical research sites in the world. The Quantgene platform allows every clinical researcher to use our new capabilities to conduct deep, comprehensive studies of cell-free DNA as the most effective biomarker across key disease categories.

Our objective is to build the foundation of a new, collaborative frontier of preventive medicine through single-molecule precision in disease detection, tracking, and profiling. With every sample processed on the Quantgene platform, we are closer to our mission: to protect your health with unrivaled precision and foresight.
