Cynvenio’s LiquidBiopsy® CTC Platform Wins Frost & Sullivan’s 2013 Technology Innovation Leadership Award

Company’s novel platform enables clinically relevant molecular profiling of circulating tumor cells isolated from the bloodstream

Westlake Village, Calif., November 25, 2013 -- Cynvenio, a cancer diagnostics company focused on transforming cancer treatment through the genomic analysis of tumor cells in the bloodstream, today announced that the company’s automated LiquidBiopsy platform has been independently evaluated and selected by Frost & Sullivan as the winner of their 2013 Technology Innovation Leadership Award.

Frost & Sullivan used a ten-step process to benchmark Cynvenio’s technology for:

  • Uniqueness of the Technology
  • Impact on New products/applications
  • Impact on Functionality
  • Impact of Customer Value
  • Relevance of Innovation to Industry

Frost & Sullivan concluded that “Cynvenio’s LiquidBiopsy platform has established itself as the best systematic approach in capturing CTCs to the degree of 99.99% purity required for conducting any downstream molecular analysis. Not only does Cynvenio provide the number of CTCs that are present in the blood sample, but this solution also delivers full-fledged analysis with details on the mutations that are present. Cynvenio provides a cost-effective tool that can be used by physicians to aid them in the process of developing a treatment plan for their cancer patients. While Cynvenio’s LiquidBiopsy platform currently has the capacity to provide results that are close to the ones obtained by a real-tissue biopsy, it is also a more feasible approach that can be used to analyze and observe the long-term effects of a patient’s cancer progression. Cynvenio has opened new avenues in the oncology and personalized medicine fields and truly deserves the 2013 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Leadership Award.”

“We are thrilled to have won the 2013 Technology Leadership Award” commented André de Fusco, Cynvenio’s CEO. “Our team has demonstrated over thousands of clinical samples that our LiquidBiopsy platform consistently delivers the higher purity needed for molecular analysis, including next generation sequencing. This capability, rather than legacy approaches such as CTC enumeration, is the key to enabling physicians to build evidence-based, individualized treatment plans that can improve patient outcomes.”
