Bio-Techne receives European IVDR Certification for Diagnostic Test to monitor Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

The QuantideX® qPCR BCR-ABL IS Kit is now compliant with the latest diagnostic regulations in Europe

MINNEAPOLIS, March 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Bio-Techne Corporation (NASDAQ: TECH) today announced that Asuragen, part of Bio-Techne’s Molecular Diagnostics Division, has completed the Class C Certification under the new European Union In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (IVDR) for its QuantideX® qPCR BCR-ABL IS Kit. Previously, the kit was CE-IVD marked for sale in the EU in compliance with the In Vitro Diagnostic Directive (IVDD), which has now been replaced by the IVDR.

The QuantideX qPCR BCR-ABL IS Kit gives labs a robust and reliable tool for monitoring chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. The highly sensitive qPCR-based in vitro diagnostic test quantifies BCR-ABL1 and ABL1 transcripts in blood samples from patients with CML to determine their response to tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy. CML patients must undergo regular monitoring to ensure that they continue to receive the most appropriate treatment for their cancer. The QuantideX kit allows for direct reporting on the International Scale and further streamlines the workflow with easy-to-use analysis software. Clinical lab scientists can run up to 49 samples per plate for a scalable solution.
