About Chronix Biomedical
Chronix Biomedical, Inc. is a US-based molecular diagnostics company developing blood tests primarily for the screening and monitoring of cancer. Chronix already offers supplemental screening evaluation tests based on copy number instability for breast and prostate cancer through its own certified laboratories in Göttingen, Germany. The prostate cancer test can discriminate between prostate cancer and other prostate conditions (such as benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostatitis) thereby avoiding invasive needle biopsies when unnecessary. These Chronix supplementary tests assist oncologists in making cancer diagnoses and can reduce costs to healthcare providers by preventing unnecessary procedures such as tissue biopsies.
