DiaCarta and HMC/HML Team up for Customizing Lab Development Test Validations and Compliances in the US Market

Jul 24, 2023 | Press Releases

DiaCarta, Ltd. (“DiaCarta”), a novel molecular diagnostic test developer for cancer and infectious diseases, today announced that the company has formed strategic partnership with New Jersey-based Hopkins MedTech Compliance (HMC) and Hopkins MedTech Lab Services (HML) to support the unmet needs for regulatory compliance and laboratory developed test (LDT) validation of in vitro diagnostics (IVD) in the United States. The partnership will help companies who have developed novel IVD tests but do not have the capacity to bring the products for FDA approval, or to take the tests to clinical labs to serve healthcare providers and patients.

“We have built a strong customer base in the IVD field, which relies on our expertise for clinical trials and regulatory filings, such as FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), 510(k), PMA, and De Novo applications,” said Dr. Homer Wu, CEO of HMC and HML. “DiaCarta has established high-quality systems not only for its IVD products under ISO13485 compliance, but also the LDT testing venues at its CAP/CLIA lab in California. Working with DiaCarta, we can now meet the increasing demand from our customers for their LDT development needs while waiting for product approvals by the FDA.”

“We are very glad to partner with HMC/HML to help more companies develop and validate LDTs for clinical testing,” said Dr. Adam (Aiguo) Zhang, CEO and President of DiaCarta. “Not only do we have successful experiences validating LDT assays for our clients, DiaCarta has also closely worked with CMS for coding, billing and reimbursement of the new tests.”

Both DiaCarta and HMC/HML will attend 2023 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo on July 23 to 27, Anaheim, California. Their products/services will be presented at booths #4451 for DiaCarta and #3474 for HMC/HML.
