Swift’s myT® Primer technology provides both high sensitivity and specificity in mutation detection, making it ideal for cancer research and diagnostic applications.  myT Primer technology has been non-exclusively licensed to a global diagnostic company.

Peter Kleinhenz, a Venture Partner with Fletcher Spaght Ventures, will be joining Swift's Board of Directors.  He commented that "We are excited about participating in the fastest growing life science market and partnering with such a talented team through our investment in Swift.  Their initial products and innovation pipeline offer compelling competitive advantages for next gen sequencing preparation, which is one of the bottlenecks in this field."  

Dr. Olson added “We are pleased to have new investors join our team and we also appreciate the continued support and enthusiasm of our existing investors.”
