Our mission is to offer actionable recommendations based on your DNA in real time in order to make your health, and health care, more personalized.

Logo BiogeniQ

We use the most precise information that exists: your DNA.  Our aim is to make personalized recommendations and treatments possible for you.  We believe that each person should be viewed as a unique individual, rather than a statistic or an average.

The name BiogeniQ originates from the word Biogenic, meaning ‘coming from life’

We all have the chance to live in a world where it is never too late to improve your health and well-being.

Your body is unique, and so is your health; decode it

Is your health not the most important thing that you have?  We believe that it is, which is why we put an emphasis on prevention.  BiogeniQ allows your genetics to become a tool to help you take care of yourself and those close to you.

Who you are belongs to you

You’re the owner of your genetic code.  Period.  We don’t re-sell your information and or use it for commercial purposes.

Decode you health

You are unique.  Your lifestyle choices and medical treatments should be as well.  We work with your healthcare professional so that you have the information that you need, when you need it.

Our core values

1. Act in honesty and transparency in all that we do
2. Continually learn, seek excellence and improve
3. The respect and security of your information
