Tero-Pekka Alastalo - Blueprint Genetics - Stanford Engineering - Jan 4 2016

  1. 1. Tero-Pekka Alastalo, MD, PhD President, Chief Medical Officer European Entrepreneurship & Innovation Stanford School of Engineering 4 Jan 2016 http://blueprintgenetics.com
  2. 2. •  We are a genetic diagnostics company founded in Helsinki, Finland •  Proprietary NGS sequencing method, OS-Seq, developed at Stanford University by a Finnish DNA biologists Samuel Myllykangas, published in Nature Biotechnology •  OS-Seq represents the most effective targeted sequencing technology in the market – developed for medical applications Background 2 Stanford University Oligonucleotid- selective sequencing OS-Seq™ Nature Biotechnology 2011
  3. 3. OS-SeqTM Technology hybrid selection and enrichment on flow cell SEQUENCING LIBRARY RANDOM SHEARING Day  1   TARGET ENRICHMENT and SEQUENCING SEQUENCING  LIBRARY Target enrichment on flow cell Sequencing on Illumina system Sequencing library Oligonucleotide library PREPARATION Capture of genomic targets in situ Flow cell Fully integrated target enrichment and sequencing PROCESSING SEQUENCING Days 1 - 3

  5. 5. A Top Product with Lowest COGS 5 Developed in Stanford and published in Nature, our OS- Seq method provides extreme efficiency for sequencing World’s first IBM Watson-platform for inherited disorders takes the clinical interpretation of data to a next level We have industry’s lowest COGS >60% SAVINGS** 60-80% LESS LAB WORK** ** Compared to Illumina TruSight High reliability data with 99-100% coverage
  6. 6. Our Process 6 A physician sends us a sample We sequence the DNA with our cost efficient OS-Seq method yielding high coverage We interpret the the data clinically with our IBM Watson based big data platform We send a report online and get a payment SAMPLE SEQUENCING ANALYSIS REPORT
  7. 7. Solving the Problems 7 Customers are frustrated: Solving all of these problems is a revolution: Difficult to communicate with testing laboratory High non-transparent pricing; Unclear billing policies Turnaround times are too long Diagnostic yield is poor, too many false negatives due to small panels and low sequencing coverage We focus highly on clinical specialties, our geneticists provide clinical support in the report Due to extremely low production cost we are able to lead price development and have an aggressive Max-out-of-pocket policy We run a turnaround time of 3 weeks, not several months We have the best diagnostic yield in the market due to comprehensive panels and high sequencing coverage Fast lead time 21 DAYS Coverage 100% Starting at $1500 Gapless panels fully cover target genes Genetic diagnostics with unbeatable turn-around time New technology and innovations allow remarkable cost- efficiency
  8. 8. 142 Hospitals in 18 Countries
  9. 9. Over 4000 disease with known molecular genetic background, >36 million patients in Europe Cancer diagnostics and targeted treatment Pharmacogenomics – essential tool for todays’s drug development Genetics Is Changing Medicine
  10. 10. We Are in a Unique Position For Growth in an Exploding Market 10 NGS in inherited disorders grows to a $1.5Bn market by 2020* $308m in 2015 Inherited disorders is a large healthcare problem, affecting 5% of population and driving healthcare costs. We have the best product and the lowest production cost. Inherited disorder diagnostics is a huge growth market with 38% CAGR for the next five years * Source: BCC Research, BIO126B Next-Gen Sequencing - Emerging Clinical Applications and Global Markets
