Advanced Cell Diagnostics
RNAscope: the RNA answer. The first truly effective platform for detecting RNA in situ, down to the single molecule, with unprecedented specificity.
ACD shortens the path to personalized medicine by unlocking the power of RNA biomarkers.
Advanced Cell Diagnostics, Inc. (ACD) is a leader in the emerging field of molecular pathology, developing cell- and tissue-based diagnostic tests for personalized medicine. Based in the heart of Silicon Valley, ACD was founded and managed by experienced entrepreneurs in the life science industry.
ACD’s products and services are based on its proprietary RNAscope® technology, the first multiplex fluorescent and chromogenic in situ hybridization platform capable of detecting and quantifying RNA biomarkers in situ at single molecule sensitivity.
In addition to its ongoing efforts to develop proprietary diagnostic tests for cancer management, ACD also establishes partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to validate biomarkers for targeted therapeutic development. These internal and external efforts will continue to position ACD as a leader in molecular diagnostics and companion diagnostics.
Our award-winning technology detects single RNA molecules in situ–a true breakthrough that opens up a world of new possibilities.
RNAscope® technology overcomes critical hurdles in the identification and validation of biomarkers for research, molecular diagnostics and companion diagnostics. With exceptional levels of sensitivity, specificity, and the ability to multiplex, ACD’s RNAscope® platform provides a new way of localizing and measuring RNA in situ. In addition, turnaround time for a new assay is reduced to less than three weeks, shortening the path to personalized medicine. These advantages make the technology a powerful tool to address the issue of patient and disease heterogeneity.
ACD’s RNAscope® assay technology is being adopted by a rapidly growing customer base, which includes world-leading academic institutions, cutting-edge biotechnology companies, and the global top 10 pharmaceutical companies.
