We are a Danish medical technology startup 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.
10 years horizon
Phase 0: Proof of concept
2020 – Q1 2021
Phase 1: Intelligent diagnosis – gMendel®Test
Q2 2021 – Q2 2023
Our QMS receives ISO 13485:2016 certification in February 2022. Download it here.
Version 1.0.0 of our Phivea®Platform is released under the 98/79/EC IVD Directive in Q1 2022.
After registration and approval from the Danish regulatory authorities early 2022, we will continue registration and approval in more EU markets such as Greece, Poland and Spain. Next, we plan to start pilot projects within private/public hospitals and private diagnostic centres in order to collect more data and invaluable customer input for our future products.
We expect to close our first funding round by Q2 2022 and further pursue public grants from the EU.
Next versions of our Phivea®Platform will conform to the 2017/746 IVD regulation.
The gMendel®Test is fully developed.
As from Q4 2022, we will move from SHA hashing and RSA asymmetric key-based algorithms, to blockchain for highest security and patient data encryption.
In parallel, we plan to commercialize a full genome sequencing diagnostic tool, leveraging on the full potential of the Phivea®Platform.
We will continue building interconnected partnerships with industry and communities.
Phase 2: Improving lives of patients and their caregivers – gMendel®Care
Q3 2023 – 2025
Our vision goes beyond technological advancement. With our gMendel®Care initiative, we aim to empower families and their children through social care and equal opportunities, and contribute to building resilient healthcare and welfare systems.
We aim to do this by including the gMendel®Test in national healthcare protocols for prenatal and postnatal diagnosis, creating synergies with pharmaceutical companies to stimulate research and development in orphan drugs, and facilitating collaboration and constructive dialogue with national health policy bodies and platforms.
Phase 3: Intelligent treatment – gMendel®Hope
2026 – 2029
In the future, we hope to combine the gMendel® method with direct methods in protein crystallography.
Our vision is to shape successful treatment protocols on allogeneic bone marrow transplants, by identifying compatible matches to Major Histocompatibility Complex proteins, more accurately and economically.

gMendel contributes to the communities where we live. We are committed to our employees, diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental sustainability.
Purpose matters. It’s the reason we exist, after all. As a purpose-led organisation, we aim to make a positive impact on our people and the society through our core business, as well as initiatives that make our communities a better place to live in.
This is why, in 2020 our co-founders co-founded Besesaka Foundation, a non-profit organisation in Ghana that is actively changing the lives of children in the local community of Bukom through boxing, education and leadership mindset. The Besesaka Foundation and its Boxucation academy aim to nurture talented boys and girls, by providing them complete educational opportunities and the skills they need to succeed in life. After two years of continuous support and engagement, the initiative has matured, and activities, now led by the local community, are well on track.
Connect for impact
As we strive to make an even greater impact, we are constantly looking for early-stage inspiring initiatives that promote diversity, equity and inclusion, active at any area, across the globe. If you wish to share and steer the impact of your project with us, please contact us at email@example.com.
