“Headquarters in the US and has its operation in Singapore and Vietnam, Genetica develops and commercializes its own proprietary gene decoding technology.
Genetica’s low-cost gene tests provide its users in-depth personalized reports on optimal plans for fitness and diet; children development and critical illness prevention (cancers, diabetes; strokes…).
Its proprietary technology is the achievement of marrying Machine Learning competency and Molecular Biology deep expertise, plus years of research partnership with leading institutes including UCSF, Harvard Medical School, Stanford University, Cornell University; Illumina and Thermo Fisher.
According to BCC Research dated December 2020 (Direct-to-consumer Genetic Testing Global Market and Technology), the lack of proprietary technology for Asian genomics decoding has led to a conservative projection of only 14% contribution of Asian genomics data in world database by 2025. The faster and cheaper we can close the gap, the more accessible personalized care and precision medicine it becomes for a majority of Asian people.
Genetica has been at the forefront of serving Asian’s population toward the inevitable precision medicine and personalized preventative care.
We continue to look forward to partnering with those who understand the technology and genuinely set out to pursue positive, long-term social impact.
