A less invasive, more comprehensive test for diagnosis of Coeliac Disease

Coeliac Disease is a chronic immune disorder whereby the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue when triggered by gluten ingestion.

Birmingham University and Nonacus partner to develop urine test for bladder cancer

Nonacus and the University of Birmingham have partnered to develop a non-invasive urine test for bladder cancer. The test, which is expected to be available by mid-2022, will use highly sensitive liquid biopsy technology developed by Nonacus.

Non-invasive fetal Rhesus D blood genotyping

Non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) using cell-free fetal DNA in maternal plasma is being used to determine fetal RhD blood group antigen status so that RhD-negative pregnant women can avoid receiving antenatal anti-D if they are carrying a RhD-negative baby.

Introducing Whole Genome Sequencing service

Government regulations, recently announced in the UK, now require Whole Genome Sequencing to be carried out as part of the minimum standards for COVID-19 tests for people arriving in England. In order to support SARS-CoV-2 testing laboratories, we have introduced a Whole Genome Sequencing service.

Nonacus. What’s behind the name?

When Chris Sale and Lee Silcock founded Nonacus in 2015 they had one singular purpose- to develop non-invasive DNA tests that would change the way genomic diagnostics was done. Choosing a name that would reflect this mission wasn't easy. Find out why they went with 'Nonacus'.

Nonacus wins Government grant to validate rapid sequencing based surveillance testing for COVID-19.

Nonacus was recently awarded an Innovate UK grant to validate novel, rapid surveillance testing for respiratory viral genomes using nanopore sequencing. This method will provide more comprehensive information about the SARS-CoV-2 genome and with a respiratory viral panel in the pipeline, will provide surveillance of other respiratory diseases too.

No Gluten Required

Nonacus scientists, together with researchers at the University of Cambridge, are working on the development of a novel, non-invasive test for coeliac disease that works even if the patient is already on a gluten-free diet.
