Aperiomics Launches New Website
Wednesday, August 2, 2017
Aperiomics is one of the rising stars of the biotech industry. The company is growing quickly and has drawn attention not only of the medical industry but investors as well. Over the first six months of 2017, Aperiomics grew its customer base ten-fold. Revenue over the same period alone was higher than the entirety of the company’s revenue since it started in 2014. Aperiomics has received more than $1.6 million in grants from the National Science Foundation – the latest, a grant to further develop its pathogen identification platform.
The new Aperiomics website provides specific information on services for clinicians, patients and researchers:
- For clinicians, Aperiomics solves inadequate pathogen testing by using deep next-generation sequencing and the Aperiomics Microbial Database™ (the world’s largest collection of pathogens) to test for everything instead of only a few things at a time.
- For patients, Aperiomics can help their doctors provide faster wellness through more accurate identification of the causes of infectious diseases.
- For researchers, next-generation sequencing and bioinformatic services can be customized for all pathogen testing and microbiome characterization work. Aperiomics has worked with many organizations to support genetic monitoring, biosurveillance, pathogen identification, microbiome characterization and quality monitoring programs.
Among customers that Aperiomics has helped are hundreds of patients for whom doctors could not find a solution to their illnesses until their samples were analyzed by Aperiomics to detect which pathogens were responsible. For some it was a life-death issue. Americans spend $200-250 billion per year on medical diagnostic testing according to the American College of Physicians. Much of that testing uses old technology and guesswork, leading to wasted time, money and chronic infection.
“Aperiomics is at the forefront of a very exciting worldwide expansion of technology in medicine,” said company CEO Dr. Crystal Icenhour. “Because of our powerful technology and the expert team we have in place, medical professionals and patients put their confidence in Aperiomics to find answers that no one else can find.”
