Our story

Our mission is to save lives through early detection, better prevention and more effective cures for all disease, starting with cancer.

Quantgene started in 2015 in a small UC Berkeley Lab under the leadership of Jo Bhakdi. His theory was that most disease can be detected far earlier than it is today by introducing quantitative science and a new level of precision into medical practice. Since then, our team has spent years building the industry’s best team of pioneers and developing the Apollo system. Apollo combines extreme precision sequencing, software and AI technologies to profile cell-free DNA (cfDNA) fragments with unprecedented depth and precision. In 2016, Quantgene launched its first clinical feasibility trial which continues today with the goal of adding 10,000 patient samples to the system over the next few years. We are determined to build a future where everyone is protected against most diseases through early detection with our innovative technology.
