“Our mission is to increase and enhance lives by making genomics a foundational a part of everybody’s well being and wellness journey.” - Alexander Bisignano.
Alexander Bisignano’s early ardour for science and biology led him on an thrilling journey to turning into the CEO of Phosphorus, an organization with a ground-breaking method to medical-grade genetic testing.
Lately, Alexander and his co-founder launched GeneCompass, a preventative consumer-genetic check, powered by Subsequent Era Sequencing (NGS) know-how to look at greater than 400 genes. The check leverages DNA Genotek’s Oragene•Dx at-home, self-collection saliva gadgets to acquire high-quality DNA samples so as to detect greater than 200 well being dangers, over 200 genetic drug interactions, and uncover insights into greater than 40 wellness attributes.
Alexander’s thought finds its origins within the rising world reputation of genetic testing, amongst healthcare professionals, lecturers, researchers, and currently shoppers. Advances in genetic-sequencing applied sciences have paved the way in which for tailored diagnostic in addition to therapeutic well being companies; and have improved sufferers’ and people’ well being outcomes by customized well being.
Alexander and his co-founder needed to ship a genetic-testing service that focuses totally on offering the know-how, infrastructure, and experience to drive healthcare care initiatives.

In the latest episode of our Podcast, Molecules, Microbes, and Multiomics, we invited Alexander Bisignano to inform us extra about his firm’s software of genetic testing and to share what’s in retailer for them sooner or later.
We hope you benefit from the dialog!
