The power of DNA testing for everyone.

The power of DNA testing

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.

Spartan Cube

Why Spartan?

Spartan has created a DNA analyzer the size of a coffee cup—the Spartan Cube. You can literally hold it in the palm of your hand. It provides fast and accurate results based on Nobel Prize-winning chemistry called Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).

Spartan's RX technology has been cleared by the FDA and is developed and manufactured according to an ISO 13485 quality system. Our products have been used by expert organizations such as the CDC and Mayo Clinic. Our customers include hospitals and Fortune 500 companies. Learn more

Precision Medicine (CYP2C19)

Spartan's CYP2C19 test is a great tool because it is easy to perform and provides results in 1 hour. This enables the healthcare team to make rapid, precise treatment decisions leading to better patient outcomes.
