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%.
ARESdb covers 30 years of emerging antibiotic resistance to accurately detect AMR.
>150 Digital AMR Panels
ARESdb is the world’s largest database of genetic antibiotic resistance markers and predictive AMR panels.
Broad Pathogen Coverage
ARESdb combines deep whole-genome sequencing data with antibiotic resistance profiles and is continuously expanded.
Our proprietary digital health platform combines a NGS-based Universal Pathogenome Assay (ARESupa) with a cloud based decision support & reporting system (AREScds) that is sustainably keeping pace with rapidly evolving AMR based on an Artificial Intelligence powered in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) Reference Database (ARESdb).
Most comprehensive, global and continuously updated proprietary knowledgebase on genetic antibiotic resistance marker and their diagnostic relevance.
Powered by AI
Semi-automated resistance marker discovery, prioritization and validation engine. AI-informed database expansion from structured and unstructured AMR data to diagnostics markers based on expert-defined evidence levels.
Universal Pathogenome Assay (UPA) for any patient sample.
Secure & HIPAA compliant cloud-based Clinical Decision Support system (CDS) linking AMR markers to treatment response.
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.
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.
2018 for clinical isolates
2021 (expected) for native patient samples
Currently in development
Informed by a global and continuously updated reference database (ARESdb) to reflect epidemiology of microbial infections and resistance evolution.
Designed to detect any pathogen and antibiotic resistance using a single, standardized test starting from any native patient sample.
Compatible with turn-around-times of less than 6 hours at launch and 1-2 hours mid- to long term.

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.
