Epigenomics AG Receives MedTech Outlook's 2019 Top 10 In-Vitro Diagnostics Award

  • Company recognized for its leadership in advancing blood-based tests to diagnose cancer

Berlin (Germany) and San Diego, CA (U.S.A.), July 11, 2019 - Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY) announced today that it was selected by MedTech Outlook to receive the 2019 Top 10 In-Vitro Diagnostics Award. Conducted annually, the award recognizes companies that are excelling in their respective fields. The selection panel noted that through its unique, proprietary DNA methylation biomarker technology, Epigenomics is breaking new ground in bringing a portfolio of non-invasive, blood-based diagnostics that will facilitate the detection of cancer. The company's flagship product, Epi proColon is an innovative screening test for colorectal cancer (CRC) using a simple blood draw and is available in the U.S., Europe and China. Epigenomics' HCCBloodTest CE is available in Europe and is undergoing clinical evaluation for registration in the U.S.

"Physicians need new CRC screening options that can help improve compliance among the 30 million Americans who are unwilling or unable to get screened," said Greg Hamilton, Chief Executive Officer of Epigenomics AG. "We believe that Epi proColon could help address the unmet medical need for new, non-invasive strategies for colorectal cancer detection."
