Science is we all.

We are

hopeful.

human.

Omniscope.

Our origin story

It all started with a shift of mindset.

Omniscope was founded in 2020 in response to the global pandemic by a group of scientists who wanted to be of service to humanity at a critical moment for our species. Together, we seek to apply our expertise for immediate impact.

We observed that “modern” medicine was using diagnostic tools that tend to be too narrowly focused - looking only at one disease at a time or focused on specific DNA sequence variations - resulting in diagnostic journeys of time-consuming guesswork. Frustrated that many groundbreaking scientific discoveries stayed in the scientific community instead of helping patients, we were called to find ways to put science in service of humanity and ensure cutting-edge science was accessible to all.

What emerged from these passionate conversations was a universal diagnostic to detect diseases broadly and bring our humanistic vision of health equity to life.

Every day is a good day for science.

We’re driven
by our values

We strive to create an ecosystem that improves people's lives.

Get In Touch

Knowledge

We know and believe in science. There’s much we don’t know, so we keep learning from the immune system, the scientific community, nature, and beyond. To innovate, we look at things differently. 

Collaboration

As scientists, collaboration feels natural. We listen to each other and nurture an ecosystem where everyone can contribute. The task is too great for one to solve, but together we can change the world. 

Diversity + Inclusivity

We care about people and we want to help, starting with the vulnerable. Every day, we bring our humanity to work and let our compassion be a driver. We disrupt through inclusion.  

Usefulness

We use the human body as a tool, instead of reinventing the wheel. We simplify complex things for maximum efficiency, to have a big lasting impact.
