Predicine to Introduce PredicineALERT™ MRD Assay and Present Twelve Posters at AACR 2023 Conference

New research demonstrates the value of genomic and epigenomic methylation sequencing capabilities of Predicine liquid biopsy platform for biomarker discovery, treatment selection, therapy monitoring and minimal residual disease monitoring

Hayward, California, UNITED STATES

HAYWARD, Calif., April 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Predicine, a global molecular insights company, announced today that it will present data from 12 studies and introduce PredicineALERT™, a next-generation Minimal Residual Disease (MRD) liquid biopsy assay at the 2023 AACR Conference on April 14-19, 2023. PredicineALERT™ provides a generalized approach to MRD testing – an assay without the requirement for personalized individual probe designs, but instead utilizes methylation profiling.

Key highlights of the PredicineALERT™ MRD assay include:

  • Tumor-naive MRD detection without the need of personalization
  • Fast turn-around-time (TAT) down to 6 days
  • Sample input using as low as 2.5ng cell-free DNA

Predicine will also present twelve posters demonstrating the clinical utility and effectiveness of Predicine’s liquid biopsy platform across a multitude of indications, clinical trials, and profiling applications.

“Predicine is excited to introduce the next-generation MRD assay, PredicineALERT™,” said Shidong Jia, Founder and global CEO of Predicine. “The PredicineALERT assay represents a methylation-based approach to MRD testing without personalization, minimizing the operational burden from the current tumor-informed personalized MRD assay. In collaboration with our biopharma and academic partners, we are glad to see the analytical and clinical feasibility data utilizing cell-free DNA (cfDNA) to enable global clinical trials, CDx development, and patient testing.”
