Next-gen assays for better cancer diagnosis
IRVINE, Calif. & HERSTAL, Belgium—A new agreement is underway between MDxHealth SA and the faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences/School for Oncology and Developmental Biology (GROW) at Maastricht University that expands an existing research collaboration. The agreement focuses on the development of next-generation epigenetic-based assays for the diagnosis, staging and treatment of cancer patients. The assays will be centered on sample-in and result-out-based platforms, and the technology would also be applied to MDxHealth’s liquid biopsy tests.
“GROW at Maastricht University are true visionaries and we are fortunate to have such a longstanding and collaborative relationship,” said Dr. Jan Groen, CEO of MDxHealth. “The development of next-generation liquid biopsy diagnostics for oncology will be game-changing and help physicians manage their patients faster and more effectively.”
