University of Louisville Diagnostic Lab to Use Tm Bioscience s Drug Metabolism Genetic Test

NEWS YORK, April 30 (GenomeWeb News) - Tm Bioscience will supply the Pharmacogenetics Diagnostic Laboratory of the University of Louisville Medical School with a genetic test for a metabolism gene, the company said yesterday.


Under the two-year agreement, the laboratory will use Tm Bioscience's Tag-It P450-2D6 mutation detection kit, which tests for mutations in the P450-2D6 gene that are common in patients with atypical drug metabolism.


Tm Bioscience is located in Toronto, Canada.
