Pioneering biomarker technologies for Cancer therapies

Our biomarkers are used to identify the right patient, the right drug and the right dose.

Biomarker Tests


Using our biomarker tests provides more effective treatment for patients and economic savings for the healthcare system. Our colorectal cancer tests are validated using thousands of patient samples and are set to transform the current treatment pathway.

We have reached a crossroads in cancer treatment, where we can apply innovative tests on the patient’s blood and tumour tissue to select which patients need chemotherapy, what drugs will be most effective and what is a safe dose, reducing the risk of side effects. Our portfolio of biomarker tests allows us to make a step change in the treatment of early stage colorectal cancer, a disease affecting 1.2 million new patients every year, presenting a major global burden of morbidity and mortality.”
