Our mission is to develop a platform for early cancer detection using specific biomarkers
through liquid biopsies that is accessible to the entire world population, generating social,
economic and scientific value.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 9 million people die of cancer each year, the majority in low- and middle-income countries. One of the main problems is that many cases are diagnosed too late, or that current technologies are not easily accessible to all women. Even in countries with optimal health systems and services, many cancers are diagnosed at an advanced stage, when it is more difficult for treatment to be effective.
We work to achieve a world with greater equity to health, early and accurate diagnoses and
able to treat their diseases with the highest probability of survival as possible. We want to bring our technology to biotechnology companies and laboratories around the world, since we are confident in its potential for early detection of cancer and therefore to save lives.
