IMBG is a unique In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) immunoassay that evaluate patient´s sensitivity/resistance profile to a panel of the most used immunosuppressive drugs in clinical practice. The test allows physicians to predict and monitor the response of patients‘ immune system cells and to use this information for the design of the most adequate treatment for each patient.

The IMBG test performance and reproducibility was already validated in patients undergone renal transplant in the TRANSBIO clinical study and we expect to launch IMBG test to the European market in Q1 2020.
