mtm laboratories manufactures and commercializes in-vitro diagnostic tests for the analysis of cervical cancer. Worldwide, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women. mtm’s CINtec® technology detects a specific cellular biomarker (p16INK4a) and offers the potential for highly specific and accurate diagnosis of early-stage cervical cancer, even if it is without symptoms.
Since Gilde invested in mtm laboratories, the German company has clinically validated its diagnostic products and more than doubled its sales. mtm laboratories was acquired by Roche in 2011.
