Our Commitment to Society and the Environment

We believe that pursuing our mission to improve human health extends beyond bringing innovative technologies to market. We have a responsibility to ensure that everyone can benefit from unlocking the power of the genome. We believe we can achieve this by:

  • Helping individuals, families in need and communities get access to genetic testing
  • Offering the time and talent of our employees as well as our technology to communities around the world
  • Reducing our environmental footprint by investing in sustainable solutions across facilities and within products
