Established in 2012 and hosted in one of the largest and more active bio-parks in Italy, Tuscany Life Sciences. The company is active in the area of Liquid Biopsy in cancer and after several years of R&D work and IP development, is now at commercial stage launching its proprietary and innovative solutions into the molecular diagnostics market. Exosomics’ distinguishing factor is the capability to isolate tumor-derived exosomes through proprietary affinity methods, thus enriching for tumor-derived proteins, DNA and RNA, and therefore significantly improving molecular diagnostics in cancer and allowing early pan-cancer screening. Given that tumor-derived exosomes contain biomarkers identical to those expressed on a cancer cell surface, and poorly expressed in healthy individuals, Exosomics considers exosome-based liquid biopsy as the next generation of cancer diagnostics, which will not only complement but surpass traditional biopsy.
The company’s mid/long term goal is to develop a pan-cancer test that will fulfill a critical unmet medical need by enabling early screening of multiple cancer types.Exosomics’ superior know-how and expertise in Liquid Biopsy has attracted several research groups, both Academic and from Biotech/Pharma, who are using its platform and services to address several relevant questions in diagnostics and new therapeutic development.
To ensure the highest available quality standards, Exosomics is both ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified and GCLP accredited.
