Currently, Africans only represent around 2% of genetic research. 54gene is addressing this by building the world’s largest Pan-African biobank for the discovery of treatments and diagnostics for everyone.
Our biorepository has the capacity to hold more than 50,000 biospecimens at ultra low temperature and our local clinical diagnostics lab is committed to offering the widest range of molecular and genetic testing.
We focus on illnesses such as cancer, cardiovascular, metabolic, neurodegenerative and sickle cell disease. We also provide customised recruitment service.
