THE POWER OF MAGNETOCARDIOGRAPHY

Genetesis is using Magnetocardiography (MCG) to solve chest pain triage and countless other problems in medicine.

A WORD ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS

At Genetesis, we design, prototype, and commercialize our own biomagnetic imaging devices.  In doing so, we innovate upon decades of work in the field of quantum physics and computation to record, image, and analyze the body’s functional electromagnetic activity1,2Unlike MRI, we don’t pulse or emit any magnetic fields. Instead, we passively record this human magnetic activity that is millions of times smaller than environmental magnetic fields.We have multiple technologies under development, ranging from early research applications to investigational clinical devices to solve major healthcare delivery challenges in the emergency room.

Please contact us to learn more about our products, potential collaboration opportunities, or to request to have CardioFlux installed at your site for investigational use.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE

We leverage optically pumped magnetometer measurement technology and proprietary computing methods in order to create the world’s first high-fidelity, standalone biomagnetic imaging devices that can evaluate electromagnetic activity in the body at a deeper level than ever before.

GENETESIS FARADAY

Observing the heart’s natural electromagnetic emissions.

Faraday looks at the heart’s electrical activity via the magnetic fields generated during normal cardiac conduction. This process is called magnetocardiography. Faraday is equipped with a magnetic shielding chamber, which can attenuate magnetic field noise by a factor of nearly 1500 in order to maximize signal-to-noise in its magnetocardiographic recordings.

Faraday was designed to detect the presence of ischemic cardiac tissue in patients with chest pain with an easy, noninvasive 60-90 second scan in order to simplify the triage process. The device is currently being investigated in clinical study.

CAUTION–Investigational device. Limited by Federal (or United States) law to investigational use.

GENETESIS CARDIOFLUX

Smarter Magnetocardiographic Imaging

Genetesis devices run using proprietary software called CardioFluxTM which allows operators to perform magnetocardiographic scans, perform signal processing, create dynamic functional images, and run powerful analysis tools that can assist medical professionals in diagnosing diseases (like cardiac ischemia) and planning downstream treatment. Magnetic field analysis of the heart has long been an area of study in fields like ischemia, given magnetocardiography’s enhanced sensitivity to components of cardiac electrical activity often missed by other diagnostics like the ECG3.

CardioFlux leverages the power of both classical techniques along with novel machine learning and neural networks to extract a plethora of features from collected data. Genetesis is building in diverse functionality to provide clinicians with a range of reports to suit need, from simple diagnosis to advanced image processing and localization capabilities.

PRODUCTS IN DEVELOPMENT

GENETESIS LORENTZ

A Tool to Observe the Unborn Heart

The Lorentz is a device focused on measuring the tiny heartbeats of fetuses in-utero in a process called fetal magnetocardiography.  In a similar fashion to Faraday, the device utilizes a magnetic shielding chamber to silence external magnetic fields. The scan remains completely noninvasive, happening at the surface of the mother’s skin. Fetal Magnetocardiography remains one of the only reliable methods to observe fetal electrophysiology after the second trimester of pregnancy and is not a service offered at most clinical sites in the United States, even though the American College of Cardiology has said “Fetal magnetocardiography, the magnetic analog of fetal ECG, is at this time the most effective means of assessing fetal rhythms.”4 We are working with our partners to make the technology more sensitive, cost-effective, and available than ever before.

GENETESIS WEBER

Small Animal Research Unit

Weber is a small animal biomagnetic imaging tool currently in development. It’s designed to help discover and validate the next generation of advanced therapeutics. The system is a tabletop biomagnetic imaging device designed for small animal studies without the need for telemetric EKG preparation. The system is equipped with a small scale magnetic shielding chamber, to enable high resolution signal acquisition, as well as biomagnetic imaging for more detailed analyses.
