COPENHAGEN, Denmark and BOSTON, MA, USA, July 1, 2024, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BioPorto A/S (BioPorto or Company) (CPH:BIOPOR), an in vitro diagnostics company focused on empowering the early detection of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), announced today that it has received its first standing order for its NGAL (“neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin”) assays for clinical chemistry platforms. The order is from a US hospital for the research use only (RUO) status test and represents a value of more than USD 200,000 per year. Under the standing order, the hospital will receive a pre-agreed number of test kits distributed evenly across a year.  

“We are excited about this standing order. It is both a clear signal that our customers see the tests’ strong value proposition in terms of ongoing risk assessment for early detection of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and an important element in our business model for servicing our customers in the best and most efficient way possible to ensure that the test is available at all times,” said Jennifer Zonderman, Senior Vice President, BioPorto. For a partner or hospital to commit to ongoing use of the test, they have made the decision that patient care is positively affected clinically and that economic measures, such as hospital length of stay or staff efficiency, are evident.  

BioPorto and its partners are in the process of preparing the launch of the test for US commercial clinical use for patients under the age of 22 years under the ProNephro AKI™ label following the marketing clearance of the test received by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in late 2023. BioPorto’s ProNephro AKI test is designed to help doctors identify patients at risk for developing or having moderate to severe AKI within 48-72 hours in the intensive care setting. Unlike conventional methods such as measuring serum creatinine levels, the ProNephro AKI NGAL test measures a direct marker of kidney damage and thus can potentially assess the risk of AKI days earlier.

About Acute Kidney Injury 

Acute kidney injury is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days. AKI causes a build-up of waste products in blood and makes it difficult for kidneys to maintain the proper balance of bodily fluids. AKI can also affect other organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs and is common in patients who are in hospital intensive care units.
