JERSEY, Channel Islands, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quotient Limited (NASDAQ:QTNT), a commercial-stage diagnostics company (the Company), today reported preliminary EU field trial performance data for its MosaiQ Expanded Immunohematology (IH) Microarray. The data suggest that tests performed with Quotient's Microarray are highly accurate.
Expanded IH Microarray Preliminary Performance
To date in the EU field trial, over 4000 randomly selected human blood donor samples have been tested. The concordance data obtained through the study are as follows:
|Antigen Type||k||Kpa||Fyb||Jka||Jkb||S||Leb||Antibody Screen|
The preliminary field trial data were obtained in testing laboratories using microarrays manufactured in Quotient’s ISO certified manufacturing facility in combination with the CE marked MosaiQ instrument.
The Company plans to make a CE mark submission for the Expanded IH microarray around year end. “We decided to seek two separate CE Marks - one covering all the tests included in the expanded IH menu and one with a more basic menu. This will allow us to respond more flexibly to individual tenders in Europe. We are on track to have the first powerful commercial combination, Expanded IH and Initial SDS, available for sale in Europe during the second quarter of calendar year 2021,” said Franz Walt, Chief Executive Officer of Quotient.
Quotient also reported that it expects to shortly begin a US field trial for the Expanded IH Microarray and that initial results from that trial are expected by mid-2021.
