Falcon Genomics, Inc. has moved as of April 15th 2013.

Please Note our new address: 2661 Clearview Road, #1, Allison Park, PA 15101.  

 

Mission

The goal of Falcon Genomics, Inc. is to provide cutting edge technologies for the accurate diagnosis of cancer patients and the personalized formulation of therapeutic strategies.



Technology Platform
Falcon Genomics' patented technology platform, the Cancer BioChip System (CBCS™)identifies, in a high-throughput three-dimensional fashion, compounds that are required for anchorage-independent growth of patient cells, a hallmark of cellular transformation. Potential compounds include silencing RNA libraries that contain inhibitors for every gene in the human genome.

Technology Applications

The CBCS™can be initially used for high-throughput cancer therapeutic target identification and validation. Through future clinical trials, the CBCS™ can be developed into a diagnostic tool that can be used to guide patient-specific cancer therapies.
