IQuity Labs ready to launch series of early stage autoimmune disease diagnostic tests in 2016

<span class="entry-title">Simple MS Blood Test Said to Be Able to Diagnose Disease at Symptom Onset</span><span class="entry-subtitle">IQuity Labs ready to launch series of early stage autoimmune disease diagnostic tests in 2016 </span>IQuity Labs, which specializes in diagnostic tests for autoimmune and other diseases, recently announced that it has received $2 million in seed funding to support the launch of its test panels, diagnostic tests designed to confirm the presence or absence of disease at the very onset of symptoms. The first to debut, in early to mid-2016, will be a test for multiple sclerosis (MS).
“People often search for years to find answers that will help them address symptoms related to autoimmune disease,” said IQuity’s CEO, Dr. Chase Spurlock, in a press release. “It’s our goal to equip providers with a tool to diagnose patients faster so they can lead happier, healthier lives.”
Panels to diagnose other autoimmune diseases will be released during the second half of 2016. The company also plans to launch tests — still under development — for diseases related to the fields of gastroenterology and rheumatology later this year.
