About Us

Advancing Non-Invasive Healthcare

In 2015 Nonacus was founded with a singular purpose: to offer high quality, non-invasive, genetic testing with the end-user at the forefront. Formed by a dedicated group of biotechnology professionals with over 35 years of experience within the sector, Nonacus understands the need for laboratories to continually deliver progress. This understanding forms the basis of all our products and drives our innovation.

Our Mission

Our goal is to democratize non-invasive genetic testing globally with a focus on oncology so that we can enable decentralized, cost-effective and cutting-edge cancer detection and longitudinal patient monitoring.

Our Purpose

Detecting cancer earlier and informing patient outcomes through the deployment of a truly innovative liquid biopsy testing platform.

The Nonacus Name

When Chris and Lee founded Nonacus in 2015 they had a 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.

Based off the Latin term ‘non acus’ meaning ‘no needle’, Nonacus accurately symbolises the company’s mission- to move away from intrusive, risky diagnostic procedures like tissue biopsies or amniocentesis towards less invasive testing. To read more about the story behind the name click here.

Detecting copy number variants using Next Generation Sequencing

June 30, 2023

Copy number variants are responsible for 5-10% of genetic disease – that’s why detecting them reliably and robustly is so important in clinical labs. Next Generation Sequencing panels have proven to be extremely useful for clinical applications and can successfully detect many genomic variants, but they can often struggle with CNV detection.
