Aperiomics

Aperiomics
DESCRIPTION
PROBLEM
Standardized laboratory testing fails, up to 75% of the time, to identify pathogens that cause infection.
SOLUTION
Aperiomics identifies all known pathogens in a single test through next-generation sequencing of DNA/RNA from blood, swab, urine, fecal, tissue or other samples

IMPACT
Now 58, Beth was unsure what steps to take next when she found Aperiomics through an online support group. After contacting Aperiomics, she started the process of finding a doctor willing to learn about the emerging new biotech company. After being turned away by many due to interstitial cystitis being categorized by AMA and Mayo Clinic as a syndrome with “no cure,” a compassionate doctor was willing to try this exciting new technology. A single urine sample was sent to Aperiomics for their deep shotgun metagenomic sequencing analysis, and revealed that Beth had a very unusual abundance of microbes present in her urine.
