PlexBio Updates ISO 13485 Certification

PlexBio Co., Ltd.


Taipei, Taiwan – March 7, 2017 – PlexBio Co., Ltd. an emerging multi-national diagnostic company with an industry-leading multiplex diagnostic platform has been granted ISO 13485:2003 / EN ISO 13485:2012 Certification for its expanded scope of diagnostic products by the certifying body SGS.

PlexBio chairman and chief executive officer Dr. Dean Tsao said, “Obtaining this expanded ISO 13485 certification re-confirms the quality system processes we have put in place to develop and manufacture PlexBio products and assures our customers and their patients of the highest quality results. We are pleased that SGS has recognized our company as meeting these stringent standards.”

This certification by an independent organization also ensures that process efficiency and product safety are maintained throughout the product lifecycle. This paves the way for PlexBio to enter the market with a full line of IntelliPlexTM oncology gene mutation and gene re-arrangement tests and the accompanying, automated PlexBioTM 100 and IntelliPlexTM 1000 instrument platforms. Multiple tests are currently undergoing clinical evaluation in hospital and clinical labs in the APAC region and shortly will undergo market evaluation in Europe. The company expects the oncology marker assays and IntelliPlex and DigiPlex instrument systems to achieve the CE-Mark in the first half of 2017.

PlexBio’s πCodeTM MicroDisc technology is currently the largest multiplexing platform commercially available, capable of generating over 16,000 circular image patterns. Each image pattern corresponds to an individual target which can be detected simultaneously via the advanced optical imaging and fluorescence capabilities of the PlexBio 100 instrument. By using this higher order multiplexing platform, PlexBio is able to offer highly sensitive and specific results for both immuno and molecular diagnostic formats from very low input sample volumes - which saves time and labor.
