San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2015
CorTechs Labs, the leading medical software innovator providing solutions for quantitative brain volume analysis, is pleased to announce that their innovative product, NeuroQuant® is being deployed in Human Longevity Inc.’s (HLI) Health Nucleus. The HLI Health Nucleus is the first of its kind, genomic enhanced, research based health platform. The first Health Nucleus located at HLI’s San Diego Headquarters was launched October 13, 2015. CorTechs Labs and HLI began working together in May 2014 under a collaborative agreement.
HLI is building a comprehensive genomic and phenotype database, a key component in their goal of better understanding and intervening in diseases associated with human biological decline. CorTechs Labs and HLI are working together to integrate NeuroQuant and other CorTechs Labs imaging solutions with the full range of health metrics that individuals receive at HLI’s Health Nucleus. CorTechs Labs produces FDA cleared products for measuring brain atrophy in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and brain trauma and has installations at over 500 clinical radiology sites worldwide. The goal of this project is to provide the most complete description of health ever assembled, including genome and microbiome sequencing, along with metabolomics and proteomics.
Guri Stark, CorTechs Labs’ CEO remarked, “We are excited that this partnership has moved to the next phase. The HLI and CorTechs Labs collaboration affords HLI the ability to accurately and automatically measure a variety of vital phenotypes through quantitative magnetic resonance imaging and combine it with their immense experience in genomics and bioinformatics.”
“The incorporation of volumetric imaging data into our Health Nucleus, puts us one step closer to our goal of revolutionizing healthcare using the most advanced tools available for predicting, preventing, and treating disease,” said Dr. Craig Venter, Co-founder and CEO of HLI. “The image analysis tools CorTechs Labs develops and bring to market are a vital component in translating imaging data into quantifiable phenotypes.”
