Diamics Supplies Cervical Cancer-Screening System to Beijing Hospital in $22M Deal

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Diamics will supply its molecular-based cancer-diagnostics systems and cervical cancer tools to a Beijing hospital for three years in exchange for at least $22 million, the company said today.
 
Diamics’ C-Map cervical cancer screening system, which is in clinical trials in the US, uses antibodies to identify cell colonies showing dysregulated growth, which could help identify cervical lesions. 
 
The Novata, Calif.-based company said the deal is part of a Chinese government-led initiative to improve detection of cervical cancer.
 
It said its cervical sample collection tool received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration last week.
