Software Engineer

Elypta is a Swedish molecular diagnostics company focused on reducing cancer mortality through early detection. Elypta is pioneering a metabolism-based liquid biopsy and measures the GAGome – system biomarkers of tumor metabolism. Machine learning algorithms are then used to detect signatures of cancer noninvasively. Elypta discovered that the comprehensive profile of blood and urine glycosaminoglycans – the GAGome – are accurate system biomarkers of tumor metabolism. Clinical studies to date have shown their exceptional potential for early cancer detection, which is key to improving patients’ survival. Elypta aims to be the first company to ever market an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) kit to measure GAGomes as metabolic biomarkers of cancer and a software to interpret the measurements and return a test result. We are currently developing this software and collecting vast amounts of clinical data to train our cancer diagnostics algorithms.
