"We are proud to partner with the truly innovative team at Orig3n," said Martyn Gross, President of Stratify Genomics.  "Orig3n shares our vision that information at the personal genetic level can enable individuals to create a better future for themselves.  We think our respective customers, who have already been empowered by genetic information, will be a natural fit for each other's platforms and further tests."

"We're extremely excited to be partnering with Stratify," said Robin Y. Smith, CEO of Orig3n.  "Customers will be able to learn important information about their risks for prostate and other cancers, leveraging genetics.  It is our hope that this will be yet another way in which Orig3n assists customers to lead a healthier, more proactive and more informed lifestyle, with benefits for both individuals and the broader healthcare system."

Stratify Genomics commercializes the Prompt PGS test for lifetime predisposition to Prostate Cancer.  Due to changing screening recommendations, PSA testing has been used less frequently, resulting in an increase of metastatic prostate cancer since 2012.  Prompt PGS is a simple cheek swab test that shows how likely a man is to get Prostate Cancer, and includes guidance from clinicians on how often a man should get PSA screening based on their individual score.
