Tanner Pharma Group to Distribute Novel Diagnostic Test in Latin America
TannerLAC UK Limited (“TannerLAC”), a part of Tanner Pharma Group, and Epimune Diagnostics (“Epimune”), a molecular diagnostic company, recently partnered to distribute the innovative diagnostic test, i.Mune TBNK®, in Latin America.
i.Mune TBNK® is an IVD product that quantifies CD3+, CD4+, CD8+ T-, B- and NK lymphocytes in fresh blood or a dried blood spot (DBS). Lymphocyte enumeration can be useful in follow-up and diagnostic evaluation of primary immunodeficiency, monitoring of HIV-positive patients, immune monitoring following immunosuppressive therapy for transplantation, autoimmunity and other immunological conditions, assessment of immune reconstitution post hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, early screening of gross quantitative anomalies in lymphocyte subsets in infections and malignancies and absolute quantification of circulating B cells for diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients.
Epimune engaged TannerLAC to bring this revolutionary technology to immunodeficient patients in Latin American regions. TannerLAC recently received registration approval for the product in Peru, with registration pending in Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil and Mexico.
“We are very pleased with this milestone. This is the first of many registrations to come. Our team worked efficiently to expedite the registration process in Peru despite the many requirements to fulfill,” said Carolina Cortez, Executive Vice President of TannerLAC. “We are very excited about the opportunity to bring this innovative product to the country to support doctors with an additional tool for a successful diagnosis, and to help patients in remote communities who don’t have access to this type of test.”
