Tel Aviv University is seeking for Dutch partners to validate and commercialize an assay for the identification of point mutations and insertion-deletions in the entire embryonic DNA within the mother's blood

Prof Noam Shomron and his team, at the Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, have developed an assay for the identification of point mutations and insertion-deletions in the entire embryonic DNA within the mother's blood. The test is initiated with a simple blood test at week 10 of pregnancy. The academic team is now seeking partners for validation studies, and then for commercialization. A patent is pending.
