Company Summary

We aspire to develop and commercialize a first-in-class FDA-approved In Vitro Diagnostics kit with predictive and prognostic capabilities for breast cancer. Unlike our main competitors, Oncotype Dx and Mammaprint, our product will allow cancer centers, hospitals, and research centers to run the test in their facilities. Furthermore, pre-clinical data suggests that this technology can be used in any breast cancer type.
