Online, April 5, 2016 (Newswire.com) - QuesGen Systems, Inc., a provider of research services to organizations and investigators developing treatments for brain health and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), is expanding their business capabilities and is pleased to announce the formation of a business relationship with ImmunArray, a privately held molecular diagnostics company co-headquartered in Rehovot, Israel and Richmond, Virginia.
ImmunArray, which has developed and launched the first of a suite of products for diagnosis and management of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and is developing novel sets of markers for TBI, will use the QuesGen platform to support the development and exploration of next-generation biomarker-based diagnosis and monitoring for both autoimmune disease and TBI. The company is currently conducting joint research in collaboration with leading medical centers in the United States and Israel in both fields.
"This new relationship with QuesGen Systems is an important milestone for ImmunArray, particularly at a time when we are expanding both our revenues and investment base," said Donna Edmonds, CEO and chairman of the board, ImmunArray. "QuesGen's expansive database and analytic capabilities will not only help us validate our work from a quantitative standpoint in Lupus, especially as we contemplate expanded studies and a registry, but also further enhance our data management and analysis capabilities as we broaden our study populations and clinical data collection in both Lupus and TBI populations. We look forward to tapping QuesGen's expertise and resources."
