AI powered DNA Testing

Ares Genetics’ combines Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) with ARESdb the world‘s most comprehensive database on the genetics of antibiotic resistance.


ARESdb contains thousands of whole genome sequenced clinical isolates collected from more than 200 centers globally.

ARESdb combines broad resistance profiles with high-quality genetic information and enables pathogen identification with up to >99% accuracy and antibiotic resistance detection with up to more than 98%.

A Universal Test for Any Patient

At Ares Genetics, we are developing a rapid, DNA-based test for universal pathogen diagnostics and drug response prediction.

Advancing Diagnostics

Complementing our research use only testing services, we are working on the development of diagnostic testing services from native patient samples and plan to eventually offer an IVD test kit for use by any laboratory worldwide.

Research & Epidemiology

Our digital health platform allows for connected research & epidemiology solutions as well as tracking of emerging antibiotic resistance over time and space.

With our partner network, we conveniently offer epidemiology sequencing services and reporting starting from clinical isolates, as well as cloud-based data interpretation solutions starting from next-generation sequencing raw data.

Additionally, we are currently preparing the setup of the first European reference laboratory for next-generation sequencing molecular microbiology solutions in Vienna, Austria to offer most convenient and rapid sample-to-answer testing services by overnight shipping from major European hubs.

Similarly, we are planning to set up a reference lab channel in the U.S.
