In May 2021, Epigeneres Biotech announced their early detection cancer test (co-developed with Tzar Labs, Singapore - a specialised molecular diagnostic company), with a pioneering breakthrough in RNA bio-markers technology which can even detect cancer in Stage Zero (i.e., before tumour formation).
With initial approvals in place, the latest round of investment will go towards expanding its Lab facilities, scaling operations, and development of an AI platform to launch the service in India - a world first. And, continue bringing the best diagnostic technology to patients and providers.
