Amoy Diagnostics provides state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic products and services to healthcare providers, academic institutions, and pharmaceutical companies. The company has a rich portfolio of tests that focuses on detecting mutations and measuring gene expression in FFPE cancer tissue.
The assays are based on a proprietary real-time PCR technology called “ADx-ARMS”. They have outstanding sensitivity (1%) and accuracy (99%). Three key tests – for mutations in the EGFR, KRAS and BRAF genes - have received both CE declarations for marketing in Europe and SFDA approval for clinical use in China.
The assays are designed and tested in an ISO-13485 certified laboratory and assembled in a dedicated GMP-compliant manufacturing plant. In addition to the EGFR, KRAS and BRAF tests, the company has kits for detecting mutations in JAK2, KIT, BCR-ABL, PIK3CA, EML4-ALK, P53 and the RET oncogene. Quantitative gene expression assays for excision repair (ERCC1), thymidine phosphorylase (TYMP), stathmin (STMN1), ribonucleotide reductase (RRM1) and other genes provide valuable information to help predict chemotherapy responses.
The assays are easy to perform, provide results in 90 minutes, and have been validated on several PCR instruments that are commonly used in diagnostic laboratories.
AmoyDx supplies EGFR tests to AstraZeneca in China. Amoy Diagnostics and AstraZeneca work closely together to foster the growth of molecular diagnostic testing for lung cancer patients in mainland China.
Located in beautiful Xiamen, China, Amoy Diagnostics is a privately held, well-financed company with a rich and growing pipeline of molecular diagnostic products. Our mission is to be a leading global supplier of high quality diagnostic products.
