Golden Helix is Launching VSPGx

BOZEMAN, Mont. — Golden Helix, Inc. announces the release of VSPGx, a pharmacogenomics solution for hospitals and testing labs.

The field of pharmacogenetics bridges genetics and pharmacology, with the aim of optimizing drug therapies for individual patients based on their unique genetic makeup. It has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by improving drug efficacy, reducing adverse reactions, and advancing the concept of personalized medicine moving away from a one size fits all approach.

“VSPGx has been demanded by our customers world-wide. Golden Helix partnered with the NIH, who awarded us with a phase 1 SBIR (Award 1R43HG013456 – 01) to develop a first product addressing a vast need for this type of solution in the marketplace,” says Dr. Andreas Scherer, President and CEO of Golden Helix. We are delighted to present this new product for the first time at the Golden Helix ACMG User Meeting 2024 in Toronto to customers and interested parties.”
