About us

Our Mission

We provide women and their families with actionable information to guide critical and timely health decisions. We seek to transform the execution and delivery of complex genetic testing through our three high-value screens and comprehensive suite of end-to-end workflow solutions for healthcare providers.

Counsyl operates a high-complexity clinical laboratory that offers the Foresight™ Carrier Screen, Prelude™ Prenatal Screen and Reliant™ Cancer Screen, and we offer supporting services through Counsyl Complete™, a proprietary suite of solutions, each designed to seamlessly integrate into clinic workflows and patients’ lives. Our genetic screens provide actionable information to patients and their healthcare providers through an easy-to-use and transparent process that facilitates clinical decision-making. Our custom-designed clinical laboratory provides highly reliable results, fast test processing speeds and rapid scalability, all at low capital and operating costs.

Counsyl launched our first commercial screen in 2009, and in January 2018 we reached a milestone of having delivered one million patient results.

Community Involvement

Giving back is important to us

In the community

We continue to support activities that encourage people to access screening and make choices that are right for their families. To this end, Counsyl has worked with several non-profit organizations to raise awareness and make screening as simple as possible. Our community involvement extends beyond screening too. Our employees are passionate about giving back and we provide opportunities to do so.

Sharing data

Counsyl is a proud contributor to the Free the Data movement, which encourages scientific collaboration with the aim of providing better information for more people.
Our employees are passionate about giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Through the efforts of our Counsyl Cares initiative, employees are provided with opportunities to volunteer, fundraise or participate in various non-profit sponsored events.
