600+ genes.

Powered by a knowledge-base spanning:

  • 600+ genes

  • 30,000+ variants

  • 112+ FDA and EMA approved therapies

  • 80,000+ US and EU clinical trials


  • Novel variants curated daily

  • Therapy approvals updated on alert

  • Clinical trials updated quarterly

Rules engine = near-automation.

Our rule-based engine automatically classifies >99% of variants in 50 gene panels, and >90% of variants in 500 gene panels.

Backed by experts = fast TAT reporting

A 30-strong curation team performs manual curation and rigorous review of novel variants in each sample, resulting in manual curation burden of:

  • ≈5 mins for 50 gene panels

  • ≈30 mins for 500 gene panels

  • 8 bioinformatics QC parameters, including for ex. tail distance bias, to exclude potential GoF/LoF variants

  • A growing pooled patient database to exclude panel artifacts

  • Minute distinctions, for ex. between NCCN-recommended and FDA-approved

  • Close attention to AMP tiering of approved therapies

  • Customizable reporting breadth, for ex. reports that span anywhere between 4 and 40 pages
