Analyte Health, IQuity Ink Deal to Expand Access to Dx Tests

NEW YORK (360Dx) – Analyte Health said Thursday it has reached a deal to provide certain patients access to IQuity's diagnostic tests.

Qualified patients will have immediate access to IsolateMS ­– IQuity's test to help clinicians decide whether a patient may have multiple sclerosis – through Analyte's Health Test Express website. The test is based on an RNA analytic process dubbed IQIsolate to confirm suspected autoimmune diagnosis.

Analyte and IQuity expect to make other tests available through the deal, including the IsolateIBS-IBD test for differentiating irritable bowel syndrome from inflammatory bowel disease, and the IsolateFibromyalgia test. The two tests are expected to be available through Health Test Express during the first quarter.

IQuity will run the three tests in its CLIA-certified lab in Nashville, Tennessee.

Financial and other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Based in Chicago, Analyte Health aims to provide consumers information about and access to diagnostics through a network of diagnostic service centers, online digital assets, at-home diagnostic kits, and telehealth technologies.

IQuity is a data science firm, leveraging genomics for the detection and monitoring of chronic diseases.
