NEW YORK, June 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kindbody, a leading fertility and family-building benefits provider for employers offering comprehensive virtual and in-person care, announced today the acquisition of Phosphorus Labs, a leading preventative genomics company. The acquisition and addition of Phosphorus’s 8,000 square foot state-of-the-art reference laboratory in Secaucus, NJ, will bring Kindbody’s genetic testing and screening in-house to deliver a seamless continuum of patient care. The Phosphorus team of critical intellectual capital geneticists and lab technicians will join Kindbody as its new KindLabs division.
Phosphorus has been a leader in clinical-grade genetic testing at scale. Having built a verticalized genetic testing platform, from wet lab chemistry to software and bioinformatics, Phosphorus provides the most comprehensive, medical-grade genetic tests at price points helping to democratize access to genomic information.
“I’m excited to welcome the Phosphorus team to the Kindbody family. With KindLabs, our patients will experience a seamless integration of high-quality genetic testing services,” said Dr. Dean Morbeck, Chief Scientific Officer at Kindbody. “In addition to providing an opportunity to bring existing diagnostic testing in-house, KindLabs enables us to further our mission to control costs and improve patient experience and outcomes by developing and integrating new diagnostic solutions.”
Prior to the acquisition, Kindbody has outsourced Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A) and Expanded Carrier Screening (ECS). Through the creation of KindLabs, the company will bring genetic testing and screening in-house later this year. Kindbody’s Chief Genomics Officer, Dr. Amber Cooper, commented, “This acquisition allows us to incorporate genomics into our everyday patient care, helping Kindbody build healthy families now and in the future. I am very happy to welcome the team to KindLabs and am honored to work alongside this talented team.”
