About Origin Biomarkers

Origin Biomarkers Ltd was founded in 2008 in England, UK and moved to Scotland in 2013.

About Origin Biomarkers

The company has developed several novel medical diagnostic blood tests for the detection of pregnancy disorders at the first trimester, and for the prediction of success in fertility treatment (IVF). The work was supported by R&D grants in England (APOC & AWM) and Scotland (Scottish Enterprise SMART award).

EPO and USA patents are granted for the use of these biomarkers and the company now seeks licensing partners for the commercialisation of its technologies.

Origin Biomarkers also offers an in-house service for the analysis of pre-treatment IVF patients’ blood serum as an aid to tailoring treatment plans and improving IVF pregnancy rates. Depending on the number of samples required to be tested, the price for this in-house service is negotiable.

Established October 2008

History in innovating in medical diagnostic tests

Advanced medical diagnostic tests

Unique biomarker testing for early detection for pregnancy related conditions

Intellectual Property

Patents granted (USA & EPO) for diagnostic and therapeutic applications of soluble LHCGR protein.
