PredicineCARE™ received Breakthrough Device Designation (BDD) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on August 23, 2022. PredicineCARE™ is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art NGS assay that interrogates point mutations/indels, fusions, amplifications, and gene deletions in key cancer-associated genes using cfDNA in urine.

PredicineCARE™检测方法已于 2022 年 8 月 23 日获得美国食品药品管理局(FDA)颁发的突破性医疗器械认定 (BDD),可利用尿液中的 cfDNA 检测癌症关键基因的点突变(SNV)、插入和缺失(InDel)、融合(Fusion)、扩增(Amplifications)和基因缺失(Gene deletions)。


Dr. Shidong Jia, Predicine’s Founder, Chairman, and CEO, said in a statement “we are delighted to collaborate with Janssen to develop a cfDNA urine-based assay designed to identify patients with localized bladder cancer who may harbor select alterations and may benefit from targeted therapy.”



About PredicineCARE™ Urine cfDNA Assay

The PredicineCARE™ Urine cfDNA assay is a targeted NGS test that enables detection of genomic alterations, including single nucleotide variants (SNVs), insertions and deletions (Indel), fusions, and copy number variations in urine cfDNA. It is a capture-based assay, which is specifically designed to detect genomic alterations of key cancer relevant genes from urine cfDNA.
