Posted: Monday, July 03, 2017
TUCSON, Ariz., June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq:HTGM), a provider of instruments, reagents and services for molecular profiling applications, announced its participation in WIN 2017 Symposium, dedicated to Expediting Global Innovation in Precision Cancer Medicine, which is being held in Paris, France on June 26 and 27, 2017. HTG is an industry member of the Worldwide Innovative Networking (WIN) Consortium, whose mission is to rapidly translate personalized cancer medicine discoveries into standards of patient care worldwide. WIN is a non-profit global network of world-class academics, industries and patients’ advocates aiming to transform the practice of oncology and significantly improve survival and quality of life of cancer patients. HTG was actively recruited to the consortium to support gene expression profiling activities of its members, including WIN clinical trials that integrate RNA investigations in the clinical setting.
“The membership of HTG in our organization is a key asset of WIN,” said Dr. Vladimir Lazar, Chief Scientific and Operating Officer of WIN. “HTG’s innovative technologies and cooperation with WIN members has been instrumental to develop a new generation of biomarkers that we expect to use in planned clinical trials”.
“We see great synergy and alignment between the missions of WIN and our company, especially as they relate to improvements in cancer patient care,” stated TJ Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of HTG. “We believe the benefits of our HTG EdgeSeq technology, including low sample input and easy to deploy instrumentation, work well with WIN’s innovative clinical trial designs, and we are thrilled to assist in these important programs”.
Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, the mission of HTG Molecular Diagnostics (HTG) is to empower precision medicine at the local level. In 2013 the company commercialized its first instrument platform and a portfolio of RNA assays that leveraged HTG's original proprietary nuclease protection chemistry. Continuous improvement led to the 2014 launch of the company’s HTG EdgeSeq product line, which automates sample and targeted library preparation for next-generation sequencing.
