Early diagnosis is key
As cancer screening programs become more and more widespread, our products can help to diagnose a range of cancers quickly, simply, accurately and cost effectively. Early diagnosis has the potential to not only prolong the life of patients, but also to improve their quality of life.
“Early detection of cancer greatly increases the chances for successful treatment”World Health Organization
Current cancer diagnosis frequently involves expensive, unpleasant and, often, invasive testing. Using our Nu.Q™ technology we aim to make cancer diagnosis as accessible as cholesterol or pregnancy testingDr. Jake Micallef, PhD, MBACSO
Our expert team
Volition was established in 2010 when our team saw a chance to bring together the long-established ELISA diagnostic technology with the cutting-edge nucleosome detection and analysis techniques.
We have grown over the years and are now a collective force of distinct individuals but our aim is the same – to save lives by revolutionizing the way cancer is diagnosed.
