Changing forever the way infectious diseases are diagnosed

Karius is a life sciences company focused on generating genomic insights for infectious diseases with a non-invasive karius® test that helps clinicians make rapid treatment decisions. our laboratory is clia-certified and cap-accredited to perform high-complexity clinical laboratory testing. we provide unique genomic insights by detecting microbial cell-free dna (mcfdna) circulating in the bloodstream from pathogens causing an acute infection. proprietary technology efficiently extracts mcfdna directly from blood and depletes the strong human background signal and environmental contaminants. advanced machine learning algorithms allow analysis of complex genomic data in real-time. proprietary reference genome databases are constantly refined as more data becomes available.
