StratifiCare™ was founded in 2015 with the vision of empowering personalized medicine for tomorrow through our innovative diagnostic solutions. Due to the lack of advanced medical technology, physicians find it hard to provide individualized treatment for patients. This may result in less optimal clinical outcomes and usage of healthcare resources. By developing technologically advanced in vitro diagnostic solutions, we transform the way patients are managed through personalized care and create value for all.
We develop quality, innovative diagnostic tests to enable healthcare providers in delivering personalized curative therapies to every patient.
StratifiCare™ is committed to contribute to a sustainable healthcare system, and be ethical in the development and deployment of our diagnostic tests.
