Personal Genomics is like the internet in the 90s
Turnaround time is slow
Sequencing requires expertise and resources
Hardware is expensive
Use cases are limited
A device that anyone can use, anywhere, opening up access to sequencing technology anywhere around the world. We start this evolution with the 454 Bio.Get Started
Low cost Device
Affordable for labs and research institutions of any size.
Easy to Use Kits
Customizable pods available for subsequent runs.
The 454 Bio
Results without Expertise
Simply load and start the machine to get results.
Seamless Data Transfer
Easy to use data tools and sync with other devices.
What Are the Advantages of Decentralized, On-Site Sequencing Compared to Sequencing at a Centralized, Remote Laboratory?
Results available in less than 1 hour VS days/weeks
Makes frequent at-home testing possible
Sequence anywhere and build network effects
Sample stays with the patient/consumer
