Skyline Diagnostics launches unique test to detect patients with AML

February 10, 2016

On March 15, the AMLprofiler(TM) received CE-certification. With this quality assurance the AMLprofiler(TM) can be sold on the European market. Clinical studies are underway for certification by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). With the use of the diagnostically approved Affymetrix microarray platform and specially developed IT infrastructure, the AMLprofiler(TM) is a cost-effective, standardized procedure for diagnosing AML. This test is the world's first diagnostic DNA chip that makes it possible to measure the activity of disease-related genes anywhere in the world. In addition, it can be of great value for clinical research into new cures for leukemia.

The development of the AMLprofiler(TM) has been supported by the Dutch Center For Translational Molecular Medicine (CTMM) via its 'BioChip program'. Skyline Diagnostics works closely with prominent scientists and has developed strategic alliances with industrial partners for the global production and distribution of its products.

De AMLprofiler(TM) is an example of how modern DNA technology makes individualized medical treatment possible. In the near future, Skyline Diagnostics will bring onto the market similar diagnostic tests for other forms of cancer. The aim of this Rotterdam based company is to translate scientific ideas and developments into practical diagnostic procedures. Hopefully this will, in the future, contribute to transforming cancer from a deadly to a chronic disease.
