Moving diagnostic frontiers in dermatology.
We build leading innovative molecular diagnostic solutions at scale and at point of need for diagnostic laboratories, dermatologists and academic and pharmaceutical research organizations. With our quick, precise and automated tests, we enable skin experts to recommend the best treatments for human skin health.
Dermagnostix was founded as a spin-off from the Hahn-Schickard Institut in Freiburg, the Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) and TU Munich, after decades of top-level research in dermatology, immunology, bioinformatics and microfluidics. We are located in Southern Germany (Freiburg).
Game-changing modern therapies have evolved the treatment of inflammatory disease and skin cancer. Diagnostics have not kept pace with these therapeutic advances. Dermagnostix closes this gap bringing objective molecular results directly to the physician.
