Clinical & Research Tools Showcase:

Sengenics is a functional proteomics company that leverages its patented KREX technology for stratification of patients undergoing treatment with autoimmune or cancer drugs into responders, non-responders and those exhibiting irAEs. KREX can also be used to identify autoantibody biomarkers for early diagnosis of cancer, autoimmune or neurodegenerative conditions.

Realising The Potential of Precision Medicine For Autoimmune And Cancer Drugs Using Sengenics' KREX Technology
Leveraging the Sengenics KREX™ technology, we have developed a fully quantitative protein array platform which enables the simultaneous screening of thousands of functional proteins, making it an ideal platform for the identification of autoantibody biomarkers in the development of in vitro diagnostic tests. This presentation will cover the key applications of our KREX™ technology and array derivatives towards enhancing precision medicine which include patient stratification, predicting treatment responses and biomarker discovery for early diagnosis of cancer and autoimmune diseases.
