HTG Molecular Diagnostics and Daiichi Sankyo Complete Master Services Agreement

HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq:HTGM), a provider of instruments, reagents and services for molecular profiling applications, announced that it has entered into a master services agreement with Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (Daiichi Sankyo) for work to be performed in HTG’s VERI/O laboratory. The initial project includes the development of a custom assay for the detection of nearly 3,000 mRNA targets using the HTG EdgeSeq technology.

When completed, the custom assay will be used to generate data from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples. Daiichi Sankyo plans to use these data to identify a tumor profiling assay for future studies under the agreement. Daiichi Sankyo also has engaged HTG to process several hundred FFPE samples using the HTG EdgeSeq ALKPlus Assay EU in a research use only mode for exploratory research on new, potential therapeutic biomarkers.
