Quark Biosciences is a molecular diagnostics company developing first-in-class assays
in precision medicine using proprietary NextAmpTM Analysis System. The analyses of
massive amounts of available genomic data have identified nucleic acid biomarkers
associated with specific pathological conditions, diseases prognosis or treatment
response. We take important bits of genomics information, evaluate their significance, and create novel diagnostic solutions to resolve unmet needs in the
field of precision oncology and reproductive medicine.
What is NextAmpTM Analysis System?
NextAmpTM Analysis System is a multi-gene analysis platform with dual functionality, capable of both expression profiling with PenelChip® and digital level quantitation with DigiChip™. Targeted primers are pre-loaded on PanelChip®, providing ready-to-use, easy-to-operate clinical assays with a two-hour turnaround time. Designed using optoelectronic semiconductor technology, PanelChip® makes expression profiling simple, fast, yet concise. Utilizing the high-density gene chip, DigiChip™ with QuarkBio’s proprietary dqPCR platform, the absolute quantification and real-time quantitative analysis can be performed in the same reaction, thus increasing both sensitivity and accuracy for analyzing clinical samples with low quantity.
Application Assays in Oncology and Reproduction Medicine
Alongside our partners in the healthcare, biotechnology, and pharma sectors, QuarkBio has been rapidly developing clinical assays on NextAmpTM Analysis System. Our pipeline includes assays for prediction of immunotherapy responses based on tumor microenvironment; treatment selection for patients with breast cancer after surgery; high sensitivity liquid biopsy for monitoring of lung cancer patients; identifying endometrium receptivity to increase IVF success rate. These assays have been developed in partnership with renowned hospitals and medical centers.
