US-based Artemis DNA, Inc. will be opening the first international location in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Starting April 2022, Artemis DNA will begin offering its genetic testing technology and portfolio, as well as a new, revolutionary cancer screening called Trucheck™ Pragma through a partnership with Datar Cancer Genetics (Datar), a leading cancer research corporation specializing in non-invasive techniques for better diagnosis, treatment decisions, and management of cancer based in India and the United Kingdom.
The test, which was developed by Datar, uses blood samples and is intended for early detection of Prostate (men), Breast and Ovary (women), in addition to Lung, Stomach, and Colon/Pancreas cancers.
"Trucheck™ Pragma is truly a remarkable advancement in cancer screening," commented Emylee Thai, Founder and Chairwoman of Artemis DNA. "This technology enables early detection using simple blood draw for detection of Circulating Tumor Cells which are ubiquitous in individuals with cancer and undetectable in healthy individuals without cancer. The test thus has the ability to truly change lives. The team at Artemis DNA is very excited to bring this cutting-edge technology for the people of Vietnam."
Under the partnership, Artemis DNA will be the exclusive distributor for Trucheck™ Pragma in Vietnam. Datar will support the successful rollout of the cancer screening solution, which has been proven through extensive clinical validations involving more than 40,000 participants.
