About Us

We offer innovative NGS-based solutions for the quality control of biologics to improve the quality of life of patients by accelerating commercial availability of biologics and assisting with the rapid diagnosis of infectious diseases

WHAT WE DO

PathoQuest, a spin-out of Institut Pasteur Paris, is a genomic expert company offering a game-changing next-generation sequencing (NGS) approach for microbiology testing.

The NGS-based technology the company developed is used for:

  • The quality control (QC) testing of biologicals (e.g., ATMP, vaccines, antibodies), enabling rapid and robust analysis from non-regulated to GMP level

PathoQuest’s technology leverages the company’s proprietary sample preparation protocols, which are applicable to several types of biological samples, proprietary internally-curated pathogen genome databases, and automated analysis pipelines.

OUR MISSION & VISION

PathoQuest develops proprietary metagenomic-based tests and software tools that are designed to improve the detection and identification of pathogens and enable the safe and high-quality production of biologics.

 

To become a worldwide leader in the quality control for biologics and bioproduction samples, and to accelerate the time to market for innovative drugs
