Goettingen, Germany, October 19, 2014 --( 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%). EGFR, KRAS, BRAF, PIK3CA and EML4-ALK tests have received both CE declarations for marketing in Europe and SFDA approval for clinical use in China, ROS1 and ERCC1 assays are CE marked for IVD use in Europe.

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.
