The power of DNA testing for everyone.

Watch the video

DNA testing is an incredibly powerful technology for diagnosing infectious diseases, personalizing drugs to your genetics (precision medicine), detecting bacteria and viruses in food and water, testing your pets, and many other applications.

Right now, most DNA tests are performed in centralized labs and results take days or weeks. We're on a mission to revolutionize diagnostics—we believe everyone should have access to fast, accurate, and affordable DNA results.

DNA is in all life on the planet

In every human, the animals we love, the food we eat, the water we drink, and even in the air we breathe. Spartan's DNA diagnostic platform is a solution that knows no boundaries.
