WIN YOUR FIGHT WITH
CANCER WITH THE RIGHT
TREATMENT FIRST TIME
We are with you every step of the way.

Being diagnosed with cancer is a shock. You may feel overwhelmed and shut down emotionally, or your head might spin with questions. What treatment would be best for me? Is the treatment expensive? What are my chances of beating it? Will I be able to cope with the stress? What side effects will I experience? And many more.

Our cancer specialists are here to guide you and your oncologist through the maze of treatment options. We’ll help you find the right cancer treatment quickly by recommending a personalised plan based on our innovative clinical test. A treatment plan specifically chosen for you and your particular type of tumour.

Cancer treatments are complex and side effects can affect your quality of life. Therefore, your oncologist must quickly choose the most effective treatment for you, and our technology aims to help them find the best treatment plan for your tumour.

When early-stage cancer is treated with the right therapy, it can be cured. But genetic mutations and drug resistance can make treatment challenging, and there is the chance of recurrence. The type of primary cancer, mutations, recurrence, and drug effectiveness due to your immunity and drug resistance can all mean that you have to undergo several different types of therapies over a long time. All of this can be costly, stressful, and reduce your quality of life because of the therapy’s prolonged side effects.

How does our CanCertain test work?

CanCertain is a 3D cell culture-based personalised test. But what does that mean?

A 3D cell culture mimics the natural human body environment in a laboratory setting. It allows cells to grow and act like they do in your body. Thus, we can take samples (cancer cells) from your tumour and put them into as natural an environment as we can in the laboratory. At the same time, we test their sensitivity to a range of chemotherapy/immunotherapy/targeted therapydrugs.

The CanCertain test shows us the level of effectiveness of each drug against the cancer cells in your particular tumour. The test results also determine your immunity and any drug resistance, which helps us understand how your tumour will react to a specific drug and whether some cells will be more sensitive than others.

Our scientists then recommend the best treatment for you to start therapy as soon as possible and have the best chance of beating cancer.

What are the benefits of having a personalised treatment plan?

The CanCertain tests focus on which drugs would be most effective against the type of tumour you have and identifies drugs that would suit you personally based on immunity and drug resistance.

Reducing the number of rounds of different drugs by finding the most effective one first time helps to safeguard your immune system and gives you the best chance to fight against cancer.
