Proteomics International Laboratories' partner Omics Global Solutions launched PromarkerD, a predictive diagnostic test for diabetic kidney disease. The test was launched through OMG's distributor in the Dominican Republic, Macrotech Farmaceutica. Proteomics International is in discussions with potential partners to bring the test to the US, Mexico, Japan, Australia, China, and Europe. The test is a mass spec-based laboratory-developed test, Proteomics International said, adding it anticipates another licensing deal for the test with a certified lab in coming weeks. The firm plans on developing an in vitro diagnostic immunoassay version of Promarker D for use in clinical labs.
