iCardiac Processes Volume of Data Equivalent to One Thousand Traditional Thorough QT Studies

Establishes New Throughput Standard in Cardiac Core Lab Industry

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2009 -- iCardiac Technologies, Inc., a leader in advanced cardiac safety biomarker development and automated QT analysis, announced that it has processed a total of 45 million cardiac cycles for agency facing studies in a single month utilizing the company's Highly Automated QT(sm) method. The total volume of data represents the same number of cardiac cycles as would traditionally be evaluated in approximately one thousand TQT studies.

"We are enthusiastic about our continued string of industry firsts," said Sasha Latypova, Executive Vice President. "Our clients are gaining significant benefits from our advanced ECG methods, rapid turnaround times and highly scalable core lab processing capacity to meet their drug development needs."

In October 2005, the FDA introduced a new guidance for industry (ICH E14) requiring the evaluation of pro-arrhythmic potential of new drugs by measuring the QT segment of ECGs collected in clinical trials. The dissatisfaction among pharmaceutical developers with the poor precision and high cost of the "gold standard" manual QT measurements has lead to efforts toward automating QT interval measurement.
