Our story

At KDx Diagnostics, we believe in the advancement of bladder cancer recognition. Ever since our establishment in 2016, we have worked endlessly to achieve the highest sensitivity and specificity test. With the creation of our URO17(TM) kit, we have not only achieved such an inexpensive and non-invasive test, but also one that is simpler to use for the patient with results that are more accurate than ever before. We hope with the induction of the URO17(TM), we can strive for quicker recognition and response to the dangers of cancer and help out patients achieve a peaceful and care-free life..
