Leading the wave of future innovation in healthcare

Exploris provides Artificial Intelligence based diagnostic and therapeutic lab tests, allowing for higher precision of results and increased convenience and safety for patients.

We enhance lab tests with Artificial Intelligence based predictive modeling for improved interpretation of lab results. The technology platform comprises clinical data sources, knowledge and a proprietary software engine which is capable of so far unmet capabilities in detecting new combinations of markers. A change in health status is reflected in physiological factors. Identifying the relevant factors and determining their relationship leads to new diagnostic approaches and improved therapies.

As a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence based eDiagnostics and eTherapeutics, we are one of the first companies which have successfully passed clinical studies for our novel, groundbreaking tests. Bringing the power of our extensive Artificial Intelligence software suite, the internet and the huge source of information in collected data together, turns out to be one of the most important technological advances in health care.
