Caldera Health

Caldera Health

Caldera health is a New Zealand based molecular diagnostic business that is initially targeting prostate cancer diagnosis, addressing a major global unmet clinical need that arises out of the limitations of the current PSA test. Our business has developed a near perfect accuracy prostate cancer diagnosis test using prostate tissue that measures the expression of multiple RNA biomarkers and combines the expression of a small number of genes in a specific manner.
We are currently in the process of transferring this test to urine. This goal is being achieved by developing a microfluidic device to capture prostate cells from urine and applying the accurate gene expression signature. Thus Caldera is well on our way to our ultimate goal, which is to diagnose prostate cancer using a non-invasive sample like urine, we strongly believe this technology package has application to many other conditions.
