Response Biomedical Corp Company Profile

12:42 EDT 17th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Response Biomedical is commercializing a new class of diagnostic with the world's only immunoassay platform that provides lab quality information in a matter of minutes, anywhere, every time. RAMP® tests are commercially available for three cardiac markers used in the early detection of heart attack, environmental detection of West Nile virus, and biodefense applications including the detection of anthrax, ricin, smallpox, and botulinum toxin.For clinical applications, RAMP is to be used by healthcare professionals at the point-of-care, including physicians' offices, medical clinics, hospital emergency departments and laboratories worldwide. The Company has received regulatory clearance from Health Canada and the US Food and Drug Administration to market its RAMP Cardiac Marker Tests for detecting myoglobin, troponin I and CK-MB to assist in the rapid diagnosis of heart attack or acute myocardial infarction. Rapid diagnosis of heart attacks is critical to patient outcomes. Cardiac markers are proteins released in the blood following a heart attack. RAMP provides a quantitative result in approximately 15 minutes, compared to several hours turnaround time for traditional laboratory testing. The results from independent multi-center US clinical trials of RAMP tests for troponin I and CK-MB demonstrated improved performance over the current market leading quantitative point-of-care system.
The Company is expanding its international marketing and distribution network, as it pursues further clinical applications in stroke, oncology and infectious disease testing. The Company has achieved CE Mark and its Quality Management System is registered to ISO 9000: 2000 and ISO 13485:1996.
