Every immune system has a story to tell.

The key is knowing how to listen.

The adaptive immune system is diverse, and the story it tells about each of us is unique.
We are decoding these stories to improve lives.

The ABCs of Ts and Bs

T and B cells, the key adaptive immune cells that enable our body to fight against diseases, have unique receptors, T-cell receptors and B-cell receptors, which must be extraordinarily diverse to recognize one or a small number of the millions of antigens to which our bodies are continuously exposed.

The ABCs of Ts and Bs

T and B cells, the key adaptive immune cells that enable our body to fight against diseases, have unique receptors, T-cell receptors and B-cell receptors, which must be extraordinarily diverse to recognize one or a small number of the millions of antigens to which our bodies are continuously exposed.

Millions of years of practice and still improving.

The adaptive immune system has evolved into a nearly perfect natural diagnostic and therapeutic because it’s:

Sensitive

Sensitive

Detects even a very small amount of disease

Specific

Specific

Detects disease uniquely without confusing it with other diseases

Naturally amplified

Naturally amplified

Amplifies small, specific signals of disease through clonal expansion

Systemic

Systemic

Circulates that signal throughout the body in the blood

Persistent

Persistent

Maintains a robust, long-term memory
