Celera is a healthcare business that uses knowledge of human variability to provide new tests and services to personalize disease management. Our Products business develops and manufactures molecular diagnostic products that are used by hospitals and other clinical laboratories to detect, characterize, monitor and select treatment for disease. We have a distribution agreement with Abbott, through which we develop and commercialize a wide range of molecular diagnostic products, with Abbott serving as the distribution partner.
Our Services business, Berkeley HeartLab, Inc. (BHL), is a high complexity CLIA certified laboratory that offers over 25 clinical diagnostic tests including assays that determine lipoprotein particle size and density based on our proprietary segmented gradient gel electrophoresis technology, along with state-of-the-art genetic testing. These tests identify and characterize risk for cardiovascular disease and help physicians recommend treatment. Our 4myheart centers are staffed with medical professionals who use results from testing at BHL to work with patients, under their physician’s direction, to develop customized regimens for exercise, nutrition, stress management and therapy compliance.
