Attention to assay reproducibility and selection of appropriate intended use populations will be key to the success of proteomics-based tests, FDA staff fellow Joshua Levin suggested at a talk this week discussing the agency's review of two mock submissions for protein IVDMIAs.

Shanghai-based LightArray will now provide local researchers with protein biomarker testing based on Aushon's protein biomarker platforms.

The firm said it will use the funds to convert outstanding debt to equity and to expand its commercial activities across its five business divisions, including its BioDiscovery business, which sells instruments for making protein arrays as well as protein array kits.

Oxford Gene Technology has identified a panel of biomarkers it claims can be used to distinguish individuals with prostate cancer from both normal individuals and those suffering from other diseases of the prostate.

The companies are developing kits that combine Gentel's APiX technology and RayBiotech's collection of more than 55 antibody and protein arrays on a glass slide format.

Using its UNIarray protein array platform, the company plans to focus on the development of serum-based protein biomarker tests for the early detection of multiple sclerosis and the differential diagnosis of prostate cancer.

The company said it will use the proceeds to expand its diagnostics business unit and to develop serum-based assays for the early detection of multiple sclerosis and prostate cancer.

Gentel plans to add 50 new kits to its product portfolio by the end of the year, as it transforms itself from being a services-oriented business to one that derives the bulk of its sales from products.

The company is collaborating with fellow German biotech firm Mikrogen to identify autoantibody signatures typical of various infectious diseases.

The partners aim to identify biomarkers that may predict how patients react to seasonal influenza vaccinations.
