MiRXES is a Singapore-headquartered biotechnology company whose mission is to deliver world-leading multi-cancer early detection.
We are Asia-centered, starting with Southeast Asia, and have global ambitions. We have research, development, manufacturing, and clinical diagnostic operations in Singapore, USA, Japan, and China. We have sales and distribution networks worldwide.
Our flagship product is GASTROClear, the world’s first molecular blood test for early detection of gastric cancer, able to detect around 90% of patients with Stage I and II cancers.
We continue to build a comprehensive cancer portfolio with early detection tests for lung and thyroid cancer (2022), colorectal and breast cancer (2023), liver and ovarian cancer (2024). We are concurrently building a precision oncology portfolio to provide clinical insights for the complete patient journey.
MiRXES was spun off from A*STAR’s Bioprocessing Technology Institute in 2014 to commercialize an industry-leading qPCR-based technology for microRNA detection. Our ID3EAL discovery tool and workflow has been adopted by top academic and industry partners globally and is backed by the world’s first industry standard for microRNA-base diagnostics.
Our versatile platform technology and capabilities have broad applications in the discovery of biomarkers and diagnosis of diseases. We are starting with early cancer detection, but we will also addressing unmet clinical needs in cardiovascular, metabolic, and infectious diseases.
We responded to COVID-19 by leveraging our capabilities to mass produce and distribute over 5 million units of the Fortitude COVID-19 RT-PCR test. This made-in-Singapore diagnostic test, developed by A*STAR and Tan Tock Seng Hospital, has been deployed in 13 Singapore hospitals and clinical labs and exported to over 45 countries worldwide. Post-COVID, we will leverage this network to commercialize multi-cancer early detection tests in those countries which we have already gained access.
