Our Company

Mindera is a private San Diego-area company developing and commercializing next-generation medical technology to enable a new era of skin analytics at the molecular level. Using a proprietary dermal biomarker patch, Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and machine learning, Mindera technology generates clinically validated data to reduce healthcare system costs and improve patient outcomes. The platform has applicability in many chronic conditions.

Using Mindera’s proprietary FDA Registered Class I device, the Mindera platform allows for minimally invasive extraction of rich biomarker data from individual patient skin. Captured molecules are sent to the Mindera CLIA-certified lab for analysis and subsequent sequencing. Using machine learning, these baseline biomarkers can be correlated to clinical outcomes data from psoriasis patients who received specific biologic drugs, resulting in continuous evolving and improving predictive analyses for personalized drug responses. Systemwide, predicting biologic responses using Mind.Px can result in both improved psoriasis patient outcomes and billions of dollars of annual cost avoidance to the healthcare system.

Mindera won the prestigious 2021 MedTech Breakthrough Award – Best New Innovation, Dermatology and the Terra2 Skin Health Innovations Competition at the 2021 Winter Clinical Dermatology Conference. We are located in San Diego, CA. Find out more about us at www.minderadx.com.
