Freenome is dedicated to detecting cancer in its earliest stages using machine learning algorithms. The founders have devised a way to detect cancer symptoms. The process is essentially like that of a blood test, but instead of testing sugar level and cholesterol, the machine is used for diagnosing symptoms that can lead to cancer. The test concentrates on ‘circulating tumor DNA’, which means bits of DNA that are released when tumor cells die in the blood. The start-up is looking to expand its technology to look at specific types of cancer in the human body, thereby making its technology more accurate and intensive.
