Organization Description:
ProteinLogic Ltd (PL) is a biomarker discovery and exploitation company developing a novel diagnostic platform and diagnostic products with broad clinical utility. The company was founded in 2003 in Cambridge, UK, based on the work of Nobel laureate C├ęsar Milstein.

ProteinLogic has developed an immunoassay diagnostic for the ruling out of Active TB from a blood sample. ProteinLogic has validated this diagnostic signature with over 1000 high quality, prospectively collected, ethnically diverse TB patient samples, our results exceeding the WHO mandated performance criteria of 90% sensitivity and 70% specificity, including for extra-pulmonary TB cases.
