China Medical's SPR molecular diagnostic system approved in China

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Chinese state FDA (SFDA) has approved China Medical Technologies' surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based biosensor system. The technology, which has been used in molecular diagnostics research for 20 years, has potential in several clinical diagnostic applications, including detecting biomarkers for infectious diseases, cancers, and cardiovascular and immune system disorders. For example, the SPR system can detect human papillomavirus (HPV), and can be used in combination with fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) to identify patients with early-stage cervical cancer, said the firm. The system has been designed for high throughput and speed, is highly automated, and can display results in real time and online. Beijing-based China Medical has begun delivering the system to "large hospital customers".
