We are transforming genetic testing

Our whole genome sequence (WGS) based methodology is shifting the genetic testing paradigm, overcoming the limitations of traditional technologies. We sequence the entire DNA and then slice the data in any number of relevant ways for analysis. With its ability to detect all major types of genetic variation, our Genomic Unity® testing methodology provides a better test at a lower overall cost to patients and payors. Home - Variantyx
