Sickle Cell Disease
An Urgent Unmet Medical Need
Inherited Blood Disorders
- Inherited blood disorders such as sickle cell disease (SCD) or haemophilia are common throughout much of sub-Saharan Africa together affecting up to 4% of births.
- The absence of early, precise and rapid diagnosis is the major roadblock to saving lives of thousands of children per year and poses a significant burden on healthcare from long-term disability
- We have put in place innovative commercial strategies involving local partners and developed technical solutions in the laboratory to address this major unmet clinical need.
Our mission is to save the lives of young children and adults by leveraging our intellectual property and know-how to enable precise and rapid diagnosis of inherited blood disorders, infectious diseases and early-stage cancer in sub-Saharan Africa.
