In an effort to keep customers informed of these changes, the following new information is now available:

  • ImmuKnow is mapped to CPT Code: 86352, "Cellular function assay involving stimulation (e.g., mitogen or antigen) and detection of a biomarker (e.g., ATP)"

"We are very pleased by the decision of the AMA to recognize the value of ImmuKnow as a biomarker that provides valuable insight for individualized patient management by establishing a unique CPT code," said President, CEO and Chairman Brad L. Stewart. "We look forward to assisting clinicians with continuing to expand the implementation of ImmuKnow as standard of care in more effectively managing their patients' immunosuppression."

ImmuKnow is a biomarker of immune function that complements immunomodulatory therapy and helps physicians and other healthcare professionals more effectively manage immunosuppression in posttransplant patients, thereby reducing the risks of infection and rejection by:

  • Providing a global marker of immune function and response to immunosuppression at the c
