At Genapsys we are working to transform the human condition by
building an affordable, scalable genomic ecosystem that empowers
research and diagnostics. Powered by semiconductor chip-based
electronic sequencing technology, our platform will be a modular
and accessible system that will enable highly accurate, scalable,
and affordable sequencing for a variety of applications. We believe
in a world where every researcher and clinician can perform their
sequencing on-site, enabling easy and rapid access to actionable
insights based on genomic data. Join us and let's work together to
unlock universal access to genomic sequencing.
