NX Prenatal Inc., a privately held women’s healthcare molecular diagnostic company, announced today that it has entered into a strategic collaboration with Milu Labs, whose mission is to become the leading diagnostics company in Asia with a focus on maternal fetal medicine and women’s health.
“Given China’s vast population, its healthcare system wisely focuses on disease prevention and investing in early disease detection. These efforts will minimize the costs from outcomes such as preterm birth, which can bring a lifetime of medical complications,” commented Dr. Daniel Chai, co-founder & CEO of Milu Labs. “NX Prenatal’s proprietary NeXosome® liquid biopsy platform, together with sophisticated AI and bioinformatics/statistical approaches, has yielded the necessary breakthrough in this field – a blood test as early as 10-12 weeks which can stratify women at risk for preterm birth.”
“Milu Labs plans to commercialize multiple best-in-class technologies to enable a new era of personalized medicine for maternal-fetal health in Asia. NX Prenatal is pleased to partner with the preeminent experts at Milu,” commented Brian D. Brohman, CEO of NX Prenatal. “Their team uniquely understands the clinical, regulatory, and commercial requirements in that region for the successful launch and delivery of our novel test to patients and physicians.”
