New Products: Agendia's ColoPrint

Premium

Agendia last week launched ColoPrint, a microarray-based test based on an 18-gene expression signature that can be used to predict the risk of distant recurrence for stage II colon cancer patients who have undergone surgery.

According to the Dutch firm, ColoPrint provides a "definitive relapse risk assessment" for 100 percent of all stage II patients and "eliminates the gray area of indeterminate results" found in patients using clinical and pathologic factors such as T4-stage and microsatellite instability status.

Agendia offers ColoPrint as a service through its labs in Amsterdam and Irvine, Calif. Agilent Technologies manufactures Agendia's arrays.
