Atonomics Achieves Significant Milestone Related to Performance Data for Troponin I Assay Triggering Scheduled Payments From Beckman Coulter
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, November 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Atonomics A/S announced today that it has achieved an important milestone related to a
defined set of performance criteria for a Troponin I assay on the new Atolyzer(R) system.
Since entering an equity investment agreement with Beckman Coulter in May of last year
to advance the Atolyzer(R) within cardiac testing, the company has worked diligently to
deliver relevant Troponin I performance data.
“We are pleased to achieve this milestone,” said Thomas Warthoe, Atonomics’ CEO.
“Troponin I is one of the most difficult assays to transfer to a near-patient system and
still deliver data that are comparable to what the physicians get from the central
laboratory; we believe the Atolyzer(R) has the potential to allow physicians in the future
to continue to safely implement data from a near patient system.”
“We expect that this recent and significant achievement will generate appropriate
interest from Industry in order to reach the full potential of the Atolyzer(R) platform,”
said Ashok Dhanrajgir, Chairman of Atonomics board of directors and senior partner with
Inventages Venture Capital
Atonomics’ majority shareholders are Inventages Venture Capital, Sunstone Capital,
NeuroSearch A/S, and Beckman Coulter.
