Biocartis Presents the Successful use of Idylla[TM] for the Detection of the BRAF Mutation Status in Tumour Samples at the International AACR Congress (American Association for Cancer Research) in Boston
Date:10/22/2013

MECHELEN, Belgium and LAUSANNE, Switzerland, October 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Biocartis also introduces IdyllaTM, the brand name for its innovative and high-quality diagnostic platform (previously codenamed Apollo). IdyllaTM is designed to carry out fast and accurate analysis of a broad range of clinical samples[1]. The platform retains the sensitivity of existing technologies but overcomes, amongst others, the current time-consuming testing process of tumour samples.

Apollo becomes IdyllaTM

IdyllaTM is Biocartis' commercial brand name for the fully integrated molecular diagnostic platform, which analyses clinical samples accurately, fast and easily. It gives short shrift to today's time-consuming molecular testing processes. IdyllaTM will provide a direct access to a wide array of tests in various diagnostic areas. Biocartis is currently developing tests primarily in the field of oncology.

Fast and accurate analysis of tumour samples

In collaboration with the world-renowned American MD Anderson Cancer Center, IdyllaTM was used in a comparative study that included various tumour types, for the presence of the BRAF cancer gene.

Today, Dr Janku from MD Anderson and Biocartis presented the results from this study at the international congress of the American Association for Cancer Research AACR-NCI-EORTC (Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics). At this conference, the latest innovations in cancer diagnosis are presented to a large delegation of cancer experts from both the research and clinical/pharmaceutical world. The study was also selected by AACR as one of three studies presented at the AACR press conference today: ht
