About Proteona

About us

Proteona is a precision medicine company in Singapore, Germany, and the US that is pioneering the use of single cell multi-omics to improve clinical outcomes in cancer. Using a combination of innovative single cell assays and AI-assisted bioinformatics, Proteona enables pharmaceutical companies, biotech partners, and clinicians to integrate single cell level precision into their clinical projects. Proteona continues to develop comprehensive, disease-specific single cell databases combining gene expression, protein expression, and mutation information derived from each individual cells as well as drug response data for each sample. Proteona has been selected as a “One to Watch” by Nature Research Spinoff Award and a Winner of Falling Walls Ventures Breakthrough of the Year 2020.

Proteona is a spin-off from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR).

Why Proteona

The ESCAPE Technology

The ESCAPETM Technology

The enhanced single cell analysis with protein expression (ESCAPE) platform represents a suite of technologies developed by Proteona using DNA barcoded antibodies. It empowers us to obtain both proteomic and genomic information from the same single cells.

Maximize information

Maximize Information

With the power of the ESCAPE platform, you can now phenotype cells based on protein panels measuring >50 protein markers, while simultaneously measuring all potential mRNAs in each cell. ESCAPE provides the greatest insights possible into clinically important samples.

Global presence

Global Presence

Based in Singapore with additional operations in the US and Germany, Proteona has been assisting clinical laboratories around the world with their ESCAPE kit, sample-to-answer services, and bioinformatics support.
