Pioneers in individualized genetic testing
Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) can be found in everyone’s blood. Not only do our own cells release it, so do fetal, tumor, and donor organ cells. Using a simple blood draw, our technology precisely detects each of these types of cfDNA providing the insight to proactively inform treatment.
With a track record of constant innovation over the last 15 years, our technology has performed more cell-free DNA tests than any other.
Our cell-free DNA technology platform
Our cutting edge technology platform combines novel molecular biology techniques with a suite of bioinformatics software that allows detection down to a single molecule in a tube of blood. We’ve leveraged this platform to develop the most accurate non-invasive prenatal test on the market (Panorama™), the first tumor-specific assay for truly individualized cancer care (Signatera™), and best-in-class rejection assessment for kidney transplantation (Prospera™), among other transformative tests.
“We started with reproductive genetic screening, and now we’re applying our technology platform to cancer monitoring and assessing the health of transplant patients.”

Our technology workflow
Panorama: More than 2 million cell-free DNA tests performed
Panorama is the only non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) that uses cell-free DNA and unique single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based technology, making it the #1 NIPT test in the US.
Validated by >50 peer-reviewed publications and >250 technology patents
The analytic and clinical validity of our technology has been described in leading scientific journals, including Nature, Science, and JAMA. Natera is the leader in peer-reviewed published data across cfDNA applications.
