The Company and management team is passionate about the advance of genetics in personalised medicine and are committed to driving and supporting the incorporation of genetics in daily medical practice, through cooperation with health care professionals to improve the management of patient health in the areas of primary preventative care, diagnosis, and treatment.

The Company’s genomic technology and products have been fully validated over the past 10 years by significant international scientific and clinical evidence. From offices based in the UK, US and EU, GENinCode provide doctors and health care practitioners with precise personalised health information which combines traditional clinical measures with a patient’s genetic information to deliver comprehensive CVD risk assessment and improved clinical recommendations. GENinCode’s products help educate patients of their cardiovascular risk and support their adherence to therapy to improve health outcomes.

The additional funds raised will allow us to further exploit the significant market opportunity to deliver clinically proven genomic precision testing products for the CVD market. 

“We want to improve the current standard of care and enhance the assessment of the risk of the onset of CVD in what is globally the leading cause of death. CVD accounts for over 17.9 million deaths annually, representing approximately 31 per cent. of all deaths worldwide with the global cost of CVD estimated to reach approximately $1.04 trillion by 2030.”
