Sequence once, query often

Helix sequences and securely stores Exome+ data on behalf of each participant enabling flexible and on-demand access to genomic data, with the proper consent

COVID-19 testing

We've launched a sensitive, scalable, end-to-end COVID-19 test system to meet the needs of health systems, employers, governments, and other organizations across the country.


Our test system includes a non-invasive collection kit, processing of samples in our CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited high-complexity laboratory in San Diego, next-day turnaround time, and return of results to the ordering healthcare professional, the tested individual, and public health agencies, as necessary. We have also partnered with Illumina to launch a viral surveillance program.

Viral surveillance sequencing program

Helix and Illumina, with support from the CDC, are collaborating to augment national surveillance infrastructure in the US to track the emergence and prevalence of novel variants of SARS-CoV-2. Sequences are deposited regularly to GISAID and Genbank by the CDC. All B.1.1.7 variants are also reported to relevant public health departments for contact tracing efforts.
