While the technology is in its infancy, it is clear the technology would serve the undeserved market segment that cannot afford the expensive medical diagnostics required for genome analysis. The technology would not bring the costs of genome analysis down significantly, but would provide a cheaper alternative and would be available for the mass market (Chang, 2011). The healthcare sector is the most unattractive market for most startups because of government regulations but the group of entrepreneurs seems to have taken then social change approach where they aims to serve many people at minimum profit to gain competitive advantage.

The innovation is relatively faster, accurate and easy to use. The fact that medical professionals can access the technology online makes it more convenient for medical professionals and individuals with adequate background knowledge to analyze the genome data ad analyze any of the inherited diseases. The technology is cloud based making it highly available round the clock and secure from disaster. The technology is also accessible from all location worldwide but the servers are in Russia. The innovation is easy to access with patient centric outlay the enable users to upload and analyze files from any location worldwide
