US company Applied Technology Genetics has changed its name to Avitech Diagnostics, reflecting the company's emphasis on developing new diagnostic procedures for the detection of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Avitech's lead technology, Enzymatic Mismatch Scanning (EMS), uses specialised DNA repair and replication enzymes for the in vitro detection of mutated DNA sequences. EMS has proved to be effective in the detection of several genes that occur in human cancers, including p53 and BRCA1.
