Biofidelity granted key patent in US for breakthrough cancer diagnostic technology
Patent supports the unique potential of Biofidelity’s technology to deliver ultra-sensitive detection of guideline-recommended tumor markers
Cambridge, UK, 7 April 2021 – Biofidelity Ltd, the cancer diagnostics company, today announced that it has been granted a key patent in the US protecting its underlying technology. The grant of US patent US20200354786 has confirmed the novelty and inventiveness of its technology, which is designed to break down barriers to better screening, monitoring and treatment of cancer through ultra-sensitive detection of the key tumor markers recommended in treatment guidelines.
It combines fast, easy-to-interpret results with affordability, enabling oncologists to make precise decisions earlier, monitor resistance and track disease recurrence. Biofidelity expects to launch its first product, Identi-Lung, for the detection of non-small cell lung cancer, later this year.
The grant of this key patent in the US is another important step forward in our goal of transforming diagnosis to make sure every cancer patient receives the right drug at the right time. We are working hard to build a comprehensive portfolio of IP protecting our technology, applications and products to enable any lab to offer high quality precision cancer diagnostics.
