Claritas Story

Claritas Genomics serves children affected with complex genetic disorders by providing timely and accurate diagnosis, resolving families’ long search for answers. Our goal is to radically change the field of pediatric genomic medicine by enabling the integration of genomics into clinical practice to inform, guide and improve medical treatment for kids around the world.

Claritas was spun out of Boston Children’s Hospital in 2013 to become a world-class, commercial genetic diagnostic business and is now located in Cambridge, MA. At the outset, our strategic investors included Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Thermo Fisher (original investment from Life Technologies), and Cerner Corporation. WuXi-NextCODE became an investor in 2014.
