EpitogenX is a forward-thinking biotech with innovative platforms backed by a world-leading scientific team. We strive to improve global healthcare outcomes by offering innovative solutions and affordable products.
EpitogenX Ltd is a holding company aiming to build on the successes of its subsidiary, Vertebrate Antibodies Ltd, to transform the biotech industry by providing high-quality services and products for both the medical and veterinary sectors.
Our EpitoGen® and AI EpitoPrediktTM technologies come together to create a powerful game-changing platform that will transform diagnostics, vaccine design, biotherapeutics, and antibody development.
With the support of Innova Medical Group Inc, we also aim to provide accurate, simple, accessible, and affordable point-of-care testing systems.
Using AI models we offer in silico solutions, validated in vitro and applied to create prototype clinical products using EpitoGen® Technology.
Products developed using this technology are compatible with gold standard lab-based and point-of-care applications (i.e. ELISA, LFA, microfluidics), making them affordable and user friendly.
“To improve life by making accurate and affordable products accessible to community-based healthcare and middle/low-income countries”. At EpitogenX we are very proud of the important role we will play in providing our partners with the means to deliver clinical products.
“Our Vision is to make our game-changing EpitoGen® technology available globally to transform the diagnostic sector”

EpitogenX brings together two innovative platforms to create game-changing solutions.
EpitoPrediktTM is an AI software that can accurately identify immunodominant epitopes, a crucial component of diagnostic, prophylactic and immunotherapeutic vaccines.
The software is embedded with machine and deep learning algorithms which generate models that can provide accurate solutions for specific biological designs.
Our core technology is called EpitoGen®; a bioengineered recombinant scaffold that can display single or multiple epitopes/antigens, forming the basis of the diagnostic assay.
Both platforms create a self-learning system whereby data generated experimentally is used to train the AI models and improve their predictive accuracy.
