About Veracyte, Inc.

Veracyte is focused on discovering, developing and commercializing molecular cytology solutions that enable physicians to make more informed treatment decisions at an early stage in patient care, thus helping patients avoid unnecessary invasive procedures while reducing healthcare costs. Veracyte's first commercial solution, the Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, includes the Gene Expression Classifier (GEC). The GEC helps physicians reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries by employing a proprietary 142-gene signature to preoperatively determine whether thyroid nodules previously classified by cytopathology as indeterminate can be reclassified as benign. The clinical utility and cost effectiveness of the GEC have been demonstrated in studies published in peer-reviewed journals and the clinical validity of the GEC has been demonstrated in a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2012. Since the commercial launch of Afirma in January 2011, Veracyte has processed over 50,000 fine needle aspiration (FNA) samples for evaluation using Afirma and has performed more than 10,000 GECs to resolve indeterminate cytopathology results. Veracyte has obtained positive coverage decisions for Afirma from Aetna, Humana, Medicare and UnitedHealthcare. Collectively, these payers represent more than 100 million covered lives. Afirma is marketed and sold in the United States through a global co-promotion agreement with Genzyme Corporation, a subsidiary of Sanofi.
