About ixLayer

ixLayer mission is to fuel the future of direct-to-consumer products. Genetic data holds promise as the next giant leap in evolution of mankind. This inspires an ecosystem of companies to share the same mission and that is to transform human health

Illumina’s sequencing innovations accelerates the genomics industry exponentially. Genetic platform removes the complexity and the need of operating a sequencing lab. The science provided by our partner makes it possible for the end-users to understand their own genetic variation.

Our goal in this genomic ecosystem is to provide the needed technology, delivered with a personalized user friendly experience which we call a genetic product.

Why ixLayer?

The "ix" in our name comes from the infrastructure and experience of genetic testing. The “Layer” in our name comes from the fact that we have removed all of the layers needed to launch a genetic product.


Imagine a model of healthcare that’s always available and driven by data so you’re continuously collecting data off your patients’ genetics, body, environment, nutrition, and activities. By using this data you can then deliver back a personalized health care throughout their life.

They don’t have to be in a brick-and-mortar building to get it, and they have access to the world’s best experts digitally from the comfort of their home.
