NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Consumer genomics firm TruGenetics has stopped accepting new registrations for its genome scanning services as it works on "developing a new strategy," according to the firm's website.
Just a couple of months ago, the firm said that it would offer a free genetic profile of more than 500,000 genetic markers for 200 diseases and conditions to the first 10,000 customers to sign up for its service.
However, TruGenetics now has stopped accepting new registrations. It also informed registrants that it had failed to secure the funding necessary to launch its genome scanning program. The firm said that it is continuing with its efforts to raise money.
