Hong Kong start-up aims to lower cost of early autism detection using whole genome sequencing


A diagnostics start-up in Hong Kong is aiming to make it affordable to identify autism risks in infants and toddlers, as recent technological advances significantly lower the cost of whole genome sequencing-based disease detection.

BlueSky Precision Medicine, established in January this year and accepted by Hong Kong’s government-funded tech hub Cyberport in May, is providing a set of tests for children under 18 months with a family history of autism that could determine their risks of developing the disorder.


Traditionally, treatments can only be provided to autistic children above 2 years old who already display full-scale symptoms.
