The markings will enable Geneseeq to expand its global business operations and establish new partnerships in the European market.

The MRD detection kit (Shielding) employs ultra-deep sequencing technology ATG-SEQ to detect low amounts of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in the peripheral blood post-surgical intervention.

For early cancer detection, the in vitro diagnostic kit uses highly sensitive next-generation sequencing-based technology MERCURY to assess multi-omics features of circulating free DNA (cfDNA) and detect tumorigenesis in health population.

In 2022, the council of the European Union has decided to improve cancer screening and strengthening cancer prevention through early detection1.

“Obtaining the CE marks for both our MRD and MCED kits is an important milestone for Geneseeq to bring personalized liquid biopsy tests to patients worldwide,” said Dr. Xue Wu, Geneseeq Technology CEO.
