Field of Activity


Floating Genes develops diagnostic tools for use in liquid biopsies via the highly sensitive NGS detection of circulating tumor DNA.

Background
In 2020, Dr. Dipanwita Biswas conceptualized a method to detect rare mutations in liquid biopsies, validated it in Genopole’s Shaker program and, in October 2021, founded Floating Genes.

Description of the Products / Services / Technology
The start-up is developing tools for the early detection of cancer in liquid biopsies. The initial approach comprises two principal components: a kit with “Enhance-seq” technology reagents, and a computer program to analyze next-generation sequencing data.

Customer references / Partnerships / Highlights
The project was chosen for Genopole’s Shaker program where its proof of concept was achieved. The project demonstrated its feasibility in a synthetic system. A Wilco and Réseau Entreprendre laureate, Floating Genes was selected then accredited by the Cancer Campus’s OncoEntrepreneur program at the OncoSTART and IFODS conference and by the EIT Health WildCard program.

Partnerships Sought
Floating Genes is looking for scientific and clinical partnerships with, e.g., hospitals and biobanks (liquid biopsy samples) and experts in genetics and microfluidics.
