About Adaptive Biotechnologies
Adaptive Biotechnologies Corporation is a platform-based, diagnostic-driven company that leverages NGS to profile T-Cell and B-Cell Receptors. This breakthrough enables in-depth characterization of the adaptive immune system, which is the primary defense against cancer. By incorporating immunosequencing into clinical care, Adaptive can enhance the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of cancer patients.

About immunoSEQ™
Adaptive helps researchers make discoveries in oncology, autoimmune disorders and infectious diseases by offering fee-for-service access to its proprietary immune profiling sequencing technology under the immunoSEQ™ brand name. The immunoSEQ™ Kit for research use only is now available to facilitate the integration of immunosequencing into research centers. The immunoSEQ™ Assay is not for use in diagnostic procedures.

About clonoSEQ™
Adaptive uses its proprietary immunosequencing platform to validate clinical diagnostics in cancer and other immune-mediated diseases. The company's first CLIA certified clinical application, the clonoSEQ™ Assay, is used to monitor Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) in blood-based cancers. Improving the ability to accurately detect and track residual disease at a molecular level affords clinicians the potential to detect relapse earlier and improve patient care.

The company is currently validating a second novel oncology diagnostic to quantify the presence and clonality of Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes ("TILs") and to create a reliable measure of "immunocompetency" to predict or monitor response to cancer treatments that directly alter the host immune system.
