Immunovia AB was founded in 2007 by scientists from the Department of Immunotechnology at Lund University and CREATE Health – A Strategic Centre for Translational Cancer Research in Lund, Sweden. Immunovia’s strategy is to decipher a large amount of information in the blood and translate it into clinically useful tools to diagnose complex diseases such as cancer and to do this earlier and more accurately than previously possible. Immunovia’s core technology platform, IMMray™, is based on antibody microarray analysis. The company now performs clinical validation studies for commercialization of IMMray™ PanCan-d, which has the potential to become the first blood-based test for early diagnosis of cancer of the pancreas.
