A routine blood draw for
early cancer detection.

Phylomics uses a routine blood draw to detect multiple types of cancers early before symptoms appear. Their cancer diagnostic platform eliminates the need for redundant lab work and multiple appointments by providing a high degree of accuracy and by detecting 6 of the 10 most common cancers simultaneously. Phylomics detects cancer at the earliest opportunity, shifting the paradigm of wellness from retroactive intervention to prevention.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Their proprietary method examines individualized metabolic bio-signatures in blood. The blood is analyzed by mass spectrometry and their proprietary process to detect abnormal byproducts that cancer cells produce as they grow and replicate.

Unlike other modern attempts at early screening, such as genetic testing, Phylomics is a definitive diagnostic that accurately detects cancer at its earliest stage, making a cancer diagnosis more affordable, treatable, and most importantly, survivable.
