Cancer is the leading cause of death for Americans between the ages of 40 and 79. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women in the US.

Lung cancer is the world's deadliest cancer. It kills more Americans than the next three cancers combined - breast, prostate and colon - at half the incidence rate.

About Orbit Genomics

Orbit Genomics’ mission is to leverage our proprietary OrbiSeq technology platform for early disease detection and ultimately for prevention.


Our OrbiSeq technology platform analyzes repetitive DNA called microsatellites which uniquely reflect both inherited and acquired disease risk.

Microsatellites - your DNA's early warning system

Learn More



Since the first sequencing of the human genome in 2003, tremendous gains have been made in understanding hereditary cancer syndromes, with over 50 having been identified. Genetic tests to assess a person’s inherited risk of developing certain cancers are abundant. However, the tests are not clinically actionable for most healthy people. Genetic mutations measure population risk, not individual risk. Genetic mutations (SNPs) identify increased disease risk, but their presence doesn’t guarantee disease will occur, and their absence doesn’t guarantee disease will not occur. Complex diseases are caused by a combination of genetic mutations and environmental factors, including lifestyle. Orbit Genomics’ proprietary OrbiSeq technology platform analyzes novel genomic markers called microsatellites that uniquely reflect both inherited risk and risk acquired due to lifestyle and environmental exposures. Microsatellites are much more responsive than SNPs, measuring individual disease risk. They are your DNA’s early warning system.
