CareDx and Miromatrix Medical today announced an exclusive partnership aimed at advancing the next wave of innovation using fully transplantable human bioengineered organs.

CareDx will develop a testing solution for Miromatrix to use in pre-clinical animal models and will be the exclusive provider of donor-derived cell-free DNA (dd-cfDNA) testing services for use in human clinical studies to non-invasively assess acute allograft rejection in Miromatrix’s pipeline of human bioengineered organs.

“We are committed to being at the forefront of driving the next wave of innovation to address the organ supply shortage in transplantation through this collaboration with Miromatrix. We hope one day that bioengineered organs will become a reality for the thousands of patients waiting for a life-saving organ,” said Reg Seeto, CEO and President of CareDx. “We are proud to partner with Miromatrix, a leader at the forefront of human bioengineered organ development as they apply our expertise to advance their clinical pipeline.”

“CareDx is at the leading edge of transplant innovation and has been instrumental in driving paradigm shifts in clinical practice through their non-invasive testing services which are widely used by leading organ transplant centers across the U.S.,” said Jeff Ross Ph.D., CEO of Miromatrix. “Our partnership with CareDx allows us to tap into their expertise in ways that may help us accelerate our momentum as we drive the next wave of innovation with bioengineered alternatives for use in human organ transplants.”
