DxTerity Diagnostics announced that REDI-Dx™, the company’s blood-based gene expression test for estimating individualized levels of radiation exposure,* was named the 2013 NCT CBRNe Product of the Year. The award was presented at the NCT CBRNe (Non-Conventional Threat Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear explosion) Asia conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. REDI-Dx was unanimously selected by the contest jury because “it has a clear end-user benefit, economic efficiency and an excellent match between requirements and the offered solution,” according to Ilja Bonsen, founder and Managing Director of IB Consultancy, an independent defense and security firm specializing in non-conventional threats. “Against the background of mass scale incidents like Fukushima, it permits fast analysis and treatment of victims on the basis of low-cost testing,” according to several members of the award committee.

REDI-Dx is a molecular test designed to estimate an individual’s level of radiation exposure by measuring the relative expression of a panel of radiation-sensitive genes in a blood sample that is collected by either fingerstick or venipuncture. The test represents a significant advance in coordinating an organized response to a nuclear incident by providing emergency responders with rapid, patient-specific information about levels of absorbed ionizing radiation. REDI-Dx was developed as part of an ongoing collaboration between DxTerity Diagnostics and Duke University Medical Center, with funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).

According to Bob Terbrueggen, CEO of DxTerity Diagnostics, “We are excited to receive this award. It recognizes the importance of providing emergency responders with simple biodosimetry tools for testing individuals following a mass scale nuclear incident.”
