PanC-Dx is a antibody-based blood test which can detect bladder, breast, colon, lung, stomach and uterus during routine check-ups.

Initial studies conducted by OncoCyte have demonstrated that PanC-Dx may be useful for detecting various types of cancers.

OncoCyte CEO Joseph Wagner said there is an opportunity for OncoCyte to meet the essential regulatory requirements to receive a European CE Mark for this new class of cancer diagnostics.

BioTime is planning to introduce PanC-Dx in Europe in 2013.
