Sequenta

Precise, Personalized Monitoring

Sequenta is dedicated to improving patient care in diseases mediated by immune cells through measurements of lymphocyte diversity. It is commercializing its LymphoSIGHT™ platform for clinical use in minimal residual disease while continuing to validate the use of its technology in a diverse set of diseases.  Initially formed around a profound revolution in the cost of DNA sequencing the company is developing brand new approaches to measuring the most variable part of the human genome: the immune cell receptor genes. The incredible diversity created by these genes are at the heart of a large number of conditions critical to human health and disease allowing the company to be in a position to inform a large number of clinical decisions.
