Counsyl is now doing genomic testing on more than 1% of all births in the
United States.

We're a genomics startup that's developed an affordable pre-pregnancy test
which every parent can take before conception to increase their chances of
having a healthy child. The test is covered by insurance and prescribed by
thousands of physicians internationally. It was featured in the New York
Times, named one of Scientific American's Top 10 World Changing Ideas, and
won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award for Medicine.

We've quietly grown to become one of the largest genome centers in the
world, and our growth is accelerating. Many groups have done research
genomes, but no one has ever done medical genomics at quite this scale

Our team is stocked with Stanford scientists and engineers, we're very well
funded, and we're growing at a blistering pace.

We're also hiring.
