Aperiomics is the only company identifying every bacteria, DNA virus, fungi or parasite in one test. Clinicians and patients call on Aperiomics to identify infectious diseases that other tests cannot identify. The only company of its kind and scope in the world, Aperiomics identifies every known pathogen (bacteria, virus, fungi or parasite) in a single test through next-generation sequencing of the DNA or RNA in any sample (patient, environmental, etc.). The complete genetic fingerprint of that sample is then compared to the Aperiomics Microbial Database™- the most comprehensive database of microorganisms, including the world’s largest collection of pathogens. This breakthrough is only possible through Aperiomics and can be used to identify unknown/chronic infections, limit the use of antibiotics and solve difficult medical cases. Patients and their families often contact Aperiomics directly after hearing about their successes in helping others. Aperiomics was named Life Sciences Innovators of the year in 2016 and as a finalist in the 2017 Greater Washington Innovation Awards.
