What We Do

EDP Biotech is committed to developing and delivering simple, accurate and cost-effective diagnostics that detect disease early.

Our team is focused on delivering “VIP” patient care, quality products, and contract testing services with over a century of combined experience in biomarker discovery, immunoassay development, decentralized clinical studies, and rapid-response patient testing.

Our multiplexing technologies identify multiple biological targets and we can customize your assays to your research and clinical needs whether you are performing preclinical or human trials. While our founding was in Oncology biomarkers, we have advanced our technologies to identification of multiple disease-states, most recently COVID-19.  Our mission remains clear: detect early and save lives.

Just wanted to thank you for expediting the tests for my wife and I.  It is much appreciated as trying to get results within guidelines was proving difficult.  It means a lot to me.

“This spring season at Maryville College we utilized EDP Biotech for our gameday COVID 19 testing. From rapid testing on campus for football home games to opening the clinic for us on weekends for various sports, the staff was fantastic to work with and adapted to all of our evolving needs! This year has been an unprecedented time for athletics, and we would not have been able to make our sports season happen without the help of EDP Biotech.”
