Biofidelity launches ASPYRE®-Lung reagents, enabling laboratories worldwide to perform rapid precision genomic analysis

ASPYRE-Lung Research Use Only (RUO) reagents enable localized testing and rapid results across all NCCN guideline recommended genes for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

CAMBRIDGE, England and RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Biofidelity today announced the commercial launch of its ASPYRE®-Lung RUO reagent product.

ASPYRE-Lung RUO reagents enable localized testing & rapid results across recommended genes for NSCLC

ASPYRE-Lung dramatically simplifies and accelerates the detection of genomic biomarkers, enabling localized testing at a fraction of the cost of current sequencing tests, with results available in days instead of weeks.

"Following the recent launch of the ASPYRE-Lung Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) we are excited to quickly deliver our reagent solution to customers for research use," said Barnaby Balmforth, PhD, Biofidelity Co-founder and CEO. "Both launches represent a major step toward decentralizing genomic testing and enabling enhanced access to critical biomarker testing through our CLIA laboratory and research customers."

ASPYRE-Lung RUO solves key issues that create barriers to biomarker testing. ASPYRE runs on existing PCR instruments already available in laboratories around the world, and can be rapidly implemented without new laboratory staff, sample batching, or complex bioinformatics. ASPYRE's high sensitivity enables testing from tissue samples with as little as 10% tumor content, compared to 20% or 30% for most competing assays. And critically, ASPYRE enables fast analysis of comprehensive panels of genomic biomarkers without the need to send samples to a centralized lab, which often takes weeks to obtain results, allowing labs to maintain control of valuable samples.

Customers are eager to internalize rapid precision diagnostics. "At Athena Esoterix we're honored to serve a diverse group of clients, all of whom require high-quality diagnostic testing with rapid turnaround", said Elizabeth Forrester, PhD, Athena Esoterix Founder and Technical Director. "ASPYRE-Lung RUO will help us enable our physician customers to provide rapid input into their research projects."
