About Us

Today, most non-invasive genetic tests are exploratory and typically followed by an intrusive "real" diagnostic test. These "liquid biopsies" are a treasure trove of information if handled properly. Truly diagnostic tests could dramatically change the way we manage our health personally and our healthcare as a society. Recent advances in various areas of science and technology have created a possibility for truly diagnostic tests. Deepcell is developing a disruptive technology which offers a non-invasive test with diagnostic-level accuracy.
