About Our Organization

NantOmics LLC, is a leading medical diagnostic company dedicated to providing actionable intelligence and molecularly driven decision support for cancer patients and their providers at point of care. NantOmics is the first molecular diagnostics company to pioneer an integrated approach which unearths the genomic and proteomic variances that initiate and drive cancer, by analyzing both normal and tumor cells from the same patient, from DNA to RNA to protein to drug. NantOmics has a highly scalable cloud-based infrastructure capable of storing and processing thousands of genomes a day, computation of genomic variances in near real-time, and quantitative multi-plexed protein expression analysis from the same micro-dissected tumor sample used for genomic analysis.
