Redwood City, CA, November 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- GenapSys™, Inc. (GenapSys), a provider of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) systems, today announced it has raised $37M to commercialize the GENIUS™ 110 system (Gene Electronic Nano-Integrated Ultra-Sensitive), a fully integrated DNA Sequencing system for the rapidly evolving NGS market.

The Series B financing includes new investors Yuri Milner, Stanford StartX Fund, and numerous private and institutional investors with life sciences expertise, alongside existing investors Decheng Capital and IPV Capital.

Dr. Esfandypour, GenapSys Founder and CEO, made the following statement: “The power of genomics is vast and far reaching – in our lifetime we will see genomics feed the world’s population through optimizing crop yield, we’ll see genomics ensure enhanced security through accurate identification, and we’ll see genomics elevate our understanding and knowledge about the world in which we live. I believe the revolutionary genomic solution that we have been developing at GenapSys will generate a quantum leap forward to a better, more informed and healthier future. With this financing and the strong backing of our investors, we now have all the pieces in place to deliver on the commercial promise of the GENIUS System and realize a 100x improvement in cost and efficacy as compared to existing technologies on the market.
