The Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MACCI) has recognized PreventionGenetics as the 2022 Firm of the Year. The Firm of the Year recognizes businesses that have proven to be leaders in economic development, involvement within the community, talent growth, and enriching the Marshfield area.


Founded in 2004 and located in Marshfield, Wis., PreventionGenetics is a DNA testing laboratory, providing more than 5,000 predefined genetic tests for nearly all clinically relevant genes. In January 2022, Exact Sciences acquired PreventionGenetics to accelerate availability of hereditary cancer testing for more patients. Given PreventionGenetics comprehensive genetic testing portfolio, it was a natural fit with Exact Sciences to help more patients know their germline risk of cancer and other disease.


“Over the past 18 years, we’ve had the privilege to help hundreds of thousands of patients find answers and improve lives through genetic testing”, said Tony Krentz, PhD, Chief Operating Officer at PreventionGenetics. “With the support of Exact Sciences, we have the resources to scale our operations and improve our processes, which will not only allow us to impact even more patient lives, but also hire and expand our team and positively impact our community.”


PreventionGenetics team members strive to make a positive impact within the Marshfield community by supporting United Way giving campaigns and volunteering at the Rotary Winter Wonderland. Thank you to our PreventionGenetics colleagues for continuing to raise the bar as a business leader!
