NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Horizon Discovery said today that it has launched a subsidiary called Horizon Dx to support the development, approval, and sale of companion diagnostics, initially in the area of cancer.

Horizon Dx, or HDx, will use Horizon Discovery's panel of more than 175 X-MAN human isogenic cell models that recapitulate drug sensitivity and resistance mechanisms in cancer patients. These cell models use a proprietary gene-engineering technology called GENESIS that enables rapid and precise alteration of any endogenous gene loci in human cells.
