    - FusionQuant BCR-ABL IVD kit, used in the the detection and monitoring
      of chronic myeloid leukemias (CML), is a new CE marked expanded
      version of our existing product. The new IVD kit now provides all the

      standardisation required for proper disease monitoring

      This research kit provides prognostic information, and has the
      potential to play a significant role in the monitoring of this disease.

      JAK2 negative myeloproliferative neoplams (MPN), is a significant
      addition to the MPD family of products that Ipsogen offers.
