Biocartis Announces Commercial Launch of a New Biomarker Analysis Platform

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Biocartis launches its revolutionary detection platform, Dynamic Multi-Analyte Technology ("DMAT"):

  • New proteomic and nucleic acid platform provides ultra-high quality data analysis even at higher multiplex formats.
  • Platform launched well ahead of plan. Biocartis flips from a late-stage development company into a commercial business. 

Accurate and fast validation of biomarkers; increasing efficiency in Research and Drug Development

DMAT is an innovative and integrated detection platform for high-quality biomarker analysis. It enables accelerated development of multiplex assays where several biomarkers can be analyzed at the same time. DMAT dramatically reduces hands-on time and allows users to perform bioassays far more quickly and cost-effectively than with other systems, while ensuring optimal accuracy.

"This revolutionary technology will accelerate the conversion of biomarker discoveries into clinical practice and will help scientists deliver more quickly the promise of personalized medicine," said Biocartis CEO Dr. Greg Parekh. "DMAT is complementary with protein biomarker discovery and next generation sequencing, because the ease of use, sensitivity and accuracy enables rapid validation of new biomarkers initially identified on these other platforms."

Innovative detection technology combining reproducibility, speed and multiplexing

Conceived in 2007 and developed under design control, DMAT leverages advanced semi-conductor technologies and micro-fluidics to provide fast, flexible and multiplexed detection and quantification of nucleic acid and protein based biomarkers. The platform accelerates biomarker research and yields robust and highly reproducible data over a wide range of analyte concentrations. Demonstrating concordance between single-plex and multiplex assays, the DMAT platform can measure over 2000 analytes simultaneously without deterioration in performance.

For Research Use Only ("RUO")

The DMAT platform is initially targeting the research market. As such, Biocartis is offering customizable generic test consumables to maximize application flexibility. Biocartis is additionally developing a menu of important RUO assays including a cytokine panel, an oncogene panel and a cell signaling panel.

With the commercialization of DMAT, Biocartis is scaling up its sales force to initially target the Preclinical, Clinical Development and Clinical Research markets.
