Nanostart holding Lumiphore announces European launch of diagnostic tests

Frankfurt, Germany and Richmond, CA | Posted on February 27th, 2012

ThermoFisher Clinical Diagnostics has launched three CE-marked in vitro diagnostic tests in countries of the European Economic Area (EEA), consisting of the 27 Member States of the EU and EFTA countries, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.

The tests are assays produced by Brahms with the designations Copeptin us KRYPTOR, CT-proAVP KRYPTOR, and TRAK human KRYPTOR. Since June 2009, Brahms has been a contractual partner of Lumiphore. The company was acquired by ThermoFisher in September 2009.

These diagnostic tests use Lumiphore's Lumi4® technology, a new class of fluorescent-metal lanthanide detection reagents patented by Professor Kenneth N. Raymond and coworkers at the University of California, Berkeley.

"Using Lumi4®-Tb will not only potentially increase sensitivity of certain BRAHMS diagnostic tests, but we are hopeful BRAHMS will consider the development of multiplexed assays - measuring 3-4 parameters in one test sample," explained Dr. Steven Blose, Lumiphore's chief business officer. The impact of multiplexing - multiple diagnostic tests in one sample - on the daily clinical routine spares patients the burden of repeated blood withdrawal, while simultaneously saving time and expense for hospitals.
