About the Company

Our purpose at Talis is to advance health equity and outcomes by delivering accurate infectious disease testing in the moment of need, at the point of care.

While timely diagnosis of infectious diseases is critically important to enable effective treatment, testing is primarily performed in centralized laboratories, which require samples to be shipped for processing, delaying the return of results by days. Point-of-care testing solves this problem by delivering the timely information necessary for clinical care.

To deliver our purpose we focus on three things:

  • Putting customers and patients first
  • Making Talis a great place to work
  • Living our values to Dream Big, Share Our Screens, Serve Others, Bring Our “A” Game, and Build Trust
