First in Industry

ARUP’s Pharma Services team developed, validated, and submitted the first CDx tests to receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) program.

  • KIT D816V for Gleevec eligibility
  • PDGFRB FISH for Gleevec eligibility

This work included establishing a design control program that enables ARUP to meet 21 CFR part 820 regulations.

We have extensive experience in conducting FDA presubmission meetings, FDA module preparation and submission for devices, study risk determination, and securing CE marking.

Our Pharma Services team also has considerable experience in developing immunoassays as CDx for the detection of preexisting antibodies to gene therapy vectors.
