Roche Diagnostics and BioPorto expand collaboration

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK and BOSTON, MA, 20 February, 2024, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - BioPorto A/S (BioPorto or the Company) (CPH:BIOPOR), has today announced an expansion of its strategic collaboration with Roche Diagnostics.

As announced on December 7, 2023, BioPorto received FDA clearance in the US for its NGAL test to be marketed as ProNephro AKI™ (NGAL) on Roche's cobas® c 501.

ProNephro AKI (NGAL) is the first Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) biomarker test cleared for pediatric use (aged 3 months through 21 years) in the US.

In continuation of the FDA approval, BioPorto and Roche Diagnostics today have expanded the existing global distribution agreement for the cobas c 501 and c 502 analyzers to also include the cobas c 503 analyzer.

Peter Mørch Eriksen, CEO of BioPorto, comments I am very pleased to expand the strategic collaboration with Roche Diagnostics, which is a dominant player in the diagnostic space. This is an important step in the execution of our instrument expansion strategy and will ensure a broader distribution of our NGAL test and address a critical need in relation to risk assessment and early diagnosis of acute kidney injury. We will now work together with Roche towards expanding our test to the c 503 analyzer and prepare for commercialization."

The content of this announcement does not alter BioPorto's financial guidance for 2023 as most recently presented in the November 1, 2023 Interim Report.

About Acute Kidney Injury
Acute kidney injury is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days. AKI causes a build-up of waste products in blood and makes it difficult for kidneys to maintain the proper balance of bodily fluids. AKI can also affect other organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs and is common in patients who are in hospital intensive care units (from American Kidney Association: https://www.kidney.org/atoz/content/AcuteKidneyInjury).
