Annual Results - Momentum Building on our Commercial Plans
Genetic Technologies Limited has had an exciting period of commercial growth over the last 12 months in our Business to Business (B2B) channel led by geneType and our Direct to Consumer (DTC) channel led by our EasyDNA and Affinity DNA brands. Our commitment to transforming healthcare through personalized genetic insights continues driving meaningful advancements, revolutionizing medical practices across the globe.
This year we have continued the transformational journey from an R&D organization with one polygenic risk test to an organization with revenues anchored in 3 brands: geneType, EasyDNA, and AffinityDNA.
Highlighting our commercial progress, the company announces revenues for the 12 months ending June 30, 2023, of A$8.686million, an increase of +A$1.891m; +28% compared with 2022.
Momentum building - Growth and Partnerships:
The dedication of our team, and the power of geneType, have ignited a revolution in healthcare. We are seeing encouraging growth in our commercial volumes for geneType, a testament to the value and trust we are building in the medical community. Twenty medical practices in both the US and Australia are now routinely referring patients for geneType testing, with new practices joining our network every week. This is laying the foundation for a healthcare landscape that embraces precision medicine and individualized care.
Empowering Precision Medicine Centers:
Our vision extends beyond testing; we are leading the way establishing partnerships in Precision Medicine Centers of Excellence. Paving the way for a transformative approach to patient care, harnessing the potential of geneType, creating centers that redefine medical practices and deliver more precise diagnoses and personalized treatment strategies.
Innovating for the Future:
We were proud to announce the development of the world’s first Comprehensive Breast & Ovarian Cancer Risk Test, a true testament to our dedication to innovation. This groundbreaking test, showcased at the annual BRCA (BReast CAncer) conference in Montreal, will empower women to understand their risk profile for these deadly diseases through a simple saliva sample.
Pioneering Research and Clinical Impact:
Our ground-breaking work is gaining recognition on a global scale. The science team have successfully published seven peer reviewed manuscripts and publications in prestigious journals across the world. These publications provide the evidence that the implementation of the patented geneType test will identify more at-risk patients, detect the disease early and save lives.
Expanding the Frontiers of screening:
Our geneType Multi-Test Panel now encompassing an impressive nine life threatening diseases. In phase 2 of our rollout plan, we have expanded the panel to include melanoma, pancreatic cancer, and atrial fibrillation. This expansion enhances the test’s utility, offering risk assessments for six cancers, two cardiovascular diseases, and one metabolic disease, all from a single saliva sample, covering up to 70% of mortalities and morbidities annually.
Our strategic alliance with QIAGEN marks a monumental step forward. Together, we are establishing a “Centre of Excellence” facility in Australasia, uniting our life science and diagnostics expertise. This partnership amplifies our capabilities, driving commercial opportunities, enhanced automation, and increased capacity. Our shared goal is to make geneType accessible to a wider audience, accelerating the identification and intervention for at-risk patients.
Our Medical Leadership:
Dr. Joel Evans joined our team in the U.S. and is a leader in clinical and functional medicine whose expertise and passion for personalized medicine align perfectly with our mission. His appointment underscores our commitment to bringing cutting-edge medical insights to our patients, reinforcing our dedication to advancing healthcare.
None of our achievements would have been possible without the unwavering support of Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) who are driving change in their fields. Their endorsement of geneType has opened doors to new medical practices, expanding our reach and impact.
