SB TEMPUS aims to offer genetic testing, medical data collection and analysis, and AI-driven treatment proposals, leveraging the expertise and technology Tempus has developed through its operations in the United States without access to patient-identified data from the United States.

The joint venture also plans to enhance diagnosis and treatment capabilities by collaborating with cancer genomic medicine hospitals, Japanese hospitals and medical facilities, pharmaceutical companies, biotech ventures, medical device companies, cancer insurance providers, and testing companies.
