Predictive Diagnostics, University of Utah Pen Biomarker Collaboration

NEW YORK, March 21 (GenomeWeb News) - Predictive Diagnostics, a subsidiary of Large Scale Biology, said today that it is collaborating with the University of Utah Research Foundation to identify biomarkers for the early diagnosis of pregnancy-related complications and disorders such as pre-term birth and preeclampsia.

 

UURF will provide Predictive Diagnostics with blood samples that the company will analyze using its BAMF (Biomarker Amplification Filter) software.

 

According to Predictive Diagnostics' website, the BAMF technology examines thousands of potential protein biomarkers found in the blood in order to identify proteomics "fingerprints" containing multiple disease biomarkers.

 

Predictive Diagnostics said the goal of the UURF collaboration is to identify and validate blood tests for the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of pregnancy-related disorders.
