We are a Danish medical technology company aiming to transform the diagnosis of genetic disorders for better disease management.
The gMendel® approach
is powered by genomics, AI and blockchain technology.
Our mission is to provide a shorter, safer and economical path to accurate diagnosis of genetic disorders and potential treatment.
We have developed a proprietary method for high-throughput and cost-effective genotyping. By calculating fractions of reads, our diagnostic tool can identify gene mutations and chromosomal aberrations from a normal karyotype and hence recognize genetic disorders.
We harness the full power of analytics and Artificial Intelligence throughout the complete sequencing process. By using machine learning algorithms, our proprietary technology translates real-time data into accurate and meaningful results.
We use private blockchains to ensure highest security and patient data encryption. The use of blockchain technology in healthcare applications offers unique privacy and security advantages, as it is decentralized, incorruptible and transparent.
At gMendel®, we want to make sure that all our products, services and processes meet our customers’ needs. This is why we have defined a robust quality management system (QMS) and a risk management process, conforming to ISO 13485 and ISO 14971, respectively.
gMENDEL WAS INSPIRED BY THE PERSONAL STORIES OF THE TWO FOUNDERS, CHRIS AND ZORAN.
In 2016, Chris’s 4-year-old daughter, Ilma, was diagnosed with selective mutism. The diagnosis forced Chris and his family to slow down and reflect on what was important in life. It was then when Chris decided to take a 10-month parental leave to give his daughter the time and attention she needed to thrive. With the strong support of her family, Ilma made tremendous progress and is now taking part in all learning and social activities at her school.
Some years ago, Zoran received the news that his childhood friend suffered from a rare cancer type. The exact diagnosis was only possible after DNA sequencing. While going through the complicated journey of healthcare, Zoran realized that although DNA sequencing had been a long-available technology, it was only accessible to few, due to its high cost.
Their ambition to involve DNA sequencing in routine clinical practice, led Chris and Zoran to the foundation of gMendel® in 2020.
They committed to developing a smart technology that could provide early, accurate and affordable diagnosis of genetic disorders to all heroes out there living with rare diseases.
At gMendel® we think big, start small and act now.
