DIG NATION MEMBER ROUNDUP
Santa Monica-based Serenity™, an innovative personal genomics company, has partnered with DIG South to provide members with the early adopter’s rate for Serenity™ Complete, Liquid, and Genome products – all constituting their hyper-personalized, deep genomics-based preventative care platform.
This platform combines advanced next-generation sequencing with proprietary cloud and AI technology to uncover deeper and more meaningful health insights at the earliest stages. Serenity has launched with four core components of health protection:
- LIQUID – A cutting edge, first-of-its-kind blood test designed to detect and profile cancer-related mutations in the blood to support physician-guided, multi-cancer early detection. This is a concierge service, whereby a registered nurse comes to the patient’s home or office to complete the blood draw and every step is completed via a telehealth model.
- GENOME – Saliva-based, clinical grade whole exome sequencing to profile all 20,000 genes for the most comprehensive picture of hereditary disease, medication and lifestyle risks. Serenity runs this information through their AI for ongoing personalized medical intelligence that keeps members informed of the latest clinical research, pharmacogenomic data and newly-approved therapies.
- SMART PROFILES – Cloud-based, in-depth patient health profiles which incorporate health history, family history, demographic factors and lifestyle factors to bring more context to test results.
- SERENITY CONCIERGE – An expert clinical team of genomic counselors and concierge physicians to provide interpretation of results and other support seamlessly via telehealth. The Serenity clinical team can also guide members on their personal preventative care journeys and connect them to a network of world-leading medical experts across various medical disciplines when required.
Early intervention for potentially fatal conditions like cancer is critical to ensuring better treatment response and long-term outcomes. This is a critical advancement in marrying medicine and cutting edge technologies to ensure that Serenity™ can realize its mission of extending the average healthy human lifespan of Serenity™ members by a decade within a decade.
