Novodiax announced today that they will be featured in an upcoming episode of Innovations with Ed Begley Jr., airing via Discovery Channel 4th QTR 2015. Dates and show times TBA.
This segment will explore Novodiax, a company that is dedicated to advancing tissue-based diagnostics. Audiences will learn about Novodiax’s polymer detection system-based Direct Immunohistochemistry (Direct IHC). Innovations will go behind the scenes to investigate how, based on this technology, Novodiax developed the intraoperative diagnostic tool that help surgeons make faster and more precise decisions during a critical surgical process.
“An intraoperative tissue examination needs to be completed within 20 minutes, thus only those quick chemical staining procedures have been used. Novodiax’s Direct IHC can be finished at comparable speed as the chemical staining with higher sensitivity, making intraoperative immunoassay into reality, and meanwhile significantly reducing the patient recalls for additional surgery, benefiting millions of cancer patients all over the world,” said Jianfu Wang, CEO, Novodiax.
“Novodiax is advancing diagnostics through innovations," said Michele Nehls, Producer for the series. "We look forward to enlightening our viewers on the amazing things they are doing.”
Novodiax is a new biotech company located in San Francisco Bay Area with a focus on tissue-based diagnostics and immunoassays. With its invention of Direct IHC technology, multiple unmet needs in medical diagnostics and therapeutics development can now be addressed. In addition to the intraoperative application, the technology can convert therapeutic antibodies into companion diagnostic tool, streamlining a series of procedures in therapeutic antibody development from preclinical stage to clinical trials and to patient selection in clinics.
