, /PRNewswire/ — AnchorDx, a leading diagnostics company developing cancer early detection tests, announced today that it has entered into a long-term collaboration with DiaCarta, a precision molecular diagnostics company and developer of novel oncology and infectious disease tests, for product development and global commercialization in the cancer screening area.

AnchorDx and DiaCarta will collaborate to develop and commercialize molecular diagnostic products for the global market. The collaboration will leverage proprietary technologies for DNA methylation and mutation detection developed by each company. 

AnchorDx’s DNA methylation test was granted a Breakthrough Device designation  by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2021.  Meanwhile, AnchorDx is currently conducting a registrational and prospective clinical trial (NCT05643690) for the UriFind PMA application https://clinicaltrials.gov/study/NCT05643690 ), in which DiaCarta will also participate as one of the clinical testing laboratories.

“Partnering with AnchorDx allows both companies to combine their technical expertise to develop high precision mutation and methylation assays with the needed high sensitivity and specificity to meet the evolving needs for precision diagnostics,” said Dr. Adam (Aiguo) Zhang, CEO and President of DiaCarta.

“We are committed to bringing the best cancer diagnostic products to global market. Toward that goal we are excited to work with the world-leading diagnostics company DiaCarta, to commercialize our leading cancer screening products and co-develop future cancer screening diagnostic tests,” said Dr. Jian-Bing Fan, Founder and CEO at AnchorDx.

As cancer becomes a dominant disease in China and worldwide, a global strategy and solution is needed for early cancer detection and diagnosis. Through the collaboration with DiaCarta, AnchorDx expects to accelerate its early cancer screening programs and develop a robust product pipeline.
