Prostate cancer is the most common oncopathology among men and is responsible for 3% death of male aged 50 years and over.

50 years old men have about 40% chance of getting prostate cancer. Prevalence proportion of the incidence cases among men younger than 40 years – 1 per 10 000; among men aged 60 years – 1 per 100; among men of 75 – 1 per 8. The disease usually remains asymptomatic during the first 2-4 years, and without treatment leads to death after 5-7 years.

Project product is a test system for prostate cancer diagnostics based on PCR technology and using patient’s urine.

Final user – clinical laboratories, which examine patients with suspected prostate oncopathologies.


Down syndrome is a significant social and medical problem.

The possible solution is early accurate testing of fetus during embryonal development. The project kit for aneuploidy detection in the fetus DNA using a pregnant mother's blood is based on the digital PCR method, which provides the high diagnostic performance and makes it available for almost every laboratory.


Project product – diagnostic solution for personal identification based on the real-time PCR technology which is generally available and inexpensive.

It can be used both in the "family medicine" (paternity, maternity and other family relationships), as well as in forensics and disaster medicine (identification of the criminals).
