CareDxs AlloSeq Tx 17 Gets CE Mark Approval To Enable Global Availability Of Innovative HC Technology HLA Testing For Transplant Patients

CareDx, Inc., a leading precision medicine company, announced that it had received the CE mark approval for AlloSeq Tx 17, making it broadly available to transplant patients, laboratories and clinicians around the world.

AlloSeq Tx 17 is the best in class solution for matching transplant donor organs to recipients, utilizing next generation Hybrid Capture (HC) technology for HLA testing. CareDx launched this novel technology during the American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) and BANFF Foundation for Allograft Pathology's Joint meeting September 2019.

"AlloSeq Tx 17 eliminates PCR disadvantages such as allele drop out and provides a simple workflow that could be easily implemented in Histocompatibility & Immunogenetics laboratories. Generation of reliable data and ability to extend the typing to additional non-classical HLA loci will provide better care for patients," said Milena Ivanova-Shivarova, Lab Manager, Alexandrovska University Hospital.

"CareDx is committed to providing best-in-class solutions for transplant patients. AlloSeq Tx 17 highlights CareDx's position as a leading provider of genomics-based information in transplantation, and brings significant advantages to clinicians and patients across the transplant journey," said David Sayer, PhD, VP Global Transplant Laboratory Solutions.

CareDx, Inc., headquartered in South San Francisco, California, is a leading precision medicine solutions company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers.
