GenapSys
Sequencing without compromise

Our vision

What if the power of genomics was placed in the hands of the individual researcher, with direct access to sequencing technology that is highly accurate, incredibly scalable, and exceptionally affordable? GenapSys is realizing this goal by democratizing access to Next-Generation Sequencing. With our innovative electrical detection technology, GenapSys is revolutionizing genomics discovery, biomedical research, healthcare, diagnostics, agriculture, and a variety of other fields.

About us

GenapSys, Inc. is a private company headquartered in Redwood City, California. The company was founded by Dr. Hesaam Esfandyarpour. He and his team developed several novel technologies for DNA sequencing and protein detection at Stanford Genome Technology Center, prior to founding GenapSys in 2010.

With a strong background in electrical engineering (MS, PhD Electrical Engineering, Stanford), Dr. Esfandyarpour was able to conceive and demonstrate a novel and far higher efficiency method for DNA sequencing. Instead of optical-based technologies traditionally used in the industry, the GenapSys system centers around a pure electronic chip, with a simple, elegant, accurate and low-cost solution.

Since incorporation, GenapSys has built a stellar multidisciplinary team and set up headquarters in Redwood City, CA.
