EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc Announces a Major 18 Month Collaboration in the US, for its PrecisionPath Technology

EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc announced a major 18 month collaboration in the US, using the company's PrecisionPath™ technology to provide genetic profiles of cancer tumours, which, if successful, will lead to greatly improved treatment decisions for colon cancer patients. EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc (AIM: EKF), the AIM listed point-of-care, central laboratory and molecular diagnostics business, announces a major 18 month collaboration in the US, using the Company's PrecisionPath™ technology to provide genetic profiles of cancer tumours, which, if successful, will lead to greatly improved treatment decisions for colon cancer patients. The collaboration brings together EKF's subsidiary Selah Genomics; Greenville Health Systems, one of the leading cancer institutes in the US; DecisionQ Corporation; and Becton Dickinson and Company, with the aim of creating a new way for community doctors to decide on the most effective treatments for colon cancer using the latest next generation sequencing technology as well as artificial intelligence-based decision support algorithms. Over the 18 month period, EKF's PrecisionPath™ will be used to determine the genetic profiles of tumour samples provided by the Institute for Translational Oncology Research, which is part of Greenville Health Systems' Cancer Institute. At the same time DecisionQ will employ its advanced machine-learning platform to integrate the genetic profile data with existing clinical annotations and the known outcomes of the patient samples to validate the treatment indicated by the genetic profiling. If the results successfully correlate, then this will help validate EKF's PrecisionPath™ product in being able to improve clinical decisions related to the treatment of colon cancer patients.
