Our core technology, ClarityDX, is designed to diagnose disease from a simple blood test by combining a highly sensitive extracellular vesicle detection platform with advanced machine learning algorithms.

Our lead product currently in development, ClarityDX Prostate, is designed to be a highly accurate test to diagnose clinically significant prostate cancer and is positioned to emerge in the near future as a leading diagnostic tool to bring clarity to the healthcare decisions of prostate cancer.

When ClarityDX Prostate comes to market, it will help physicians and patients navigate biopsy decision at 2 critical points in care

Initial diagnosis:

ClarityDX Prostate is designed to accurately predict the presence of clinically significant prostate cancer and with the guidance of a physician can be used to inform the decision to biopsy.

Active surveillance:

ClarityDX Prostate can be used to monitor patients on active surveillance to detect the progression to clinically significant prostate cancer and inform the decision to biopsy.

The proof-of-concept EV Fingerprint test was validated in a prospective clinical trial in partnership with the Alberta Prostate Cancer Research Initiative (APCaRI).

Our results showed a 40% increase in accuracy over the current Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) testing.

In the validation prospective clinical trial, our diagnostic test achieved a > 0.8 AUC (Area Under the Curve, a measure of accuracy) for the identification of clinically significant prostate cancer, compared to a 0.58 AUC for the Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test, which is the current standard of care.

ClarityDX Prostate

Extracellular Vesicle Fingerprint for Diagnosis


Diagnostics and Liquid Biopsy.


Prostate cancer blood test - currently in clinical trials - to identify patients at risk of having clinically significant prostate cancer.

AUC: > 0.8

Sensitivity: 98%
NPV: 98%

Accurate Diagnosis

In proof of concept clinical trials, our EV Fingerprint test detects clinically significant prostate cancer with the highest accuracy compared to similar tests in the market.

High Impact

Successful implementation of ClarityDX Prostate could eliminate up to 600,000 unnecessary biopsies and 24,000 related hospitalizations in North America each year.

Clarity in healthcare decisions

By differentiating between indolent and clinically significant prostate cancer, ClarityDX Prostate can guide physicians and patients through the decision process. As a result, men across the globe may be spared the adverse events of biopsy, prostate cancer surgery, radiotherapy and hormone therapy.


When ClarityDX Prostate goes to market the test will save an estimated $1.4 billion in healthcare costs by reducing the number of prostate biopsies and unnecessary treatments such as surgery and radiation.

Clinical Utility

ClarityDX Prostate is designed to be a non-invasive and easily performed test with a small equipment footprint,these features will make this test ideal for large-scale population-based screening in medical clinics, worldwide.

Clinical Trial Phase

ClarityDX Prostate is in development and so currently has not received regulatory approval or clearance in any markets.

New Applications and Product Pipeline

The ability to detect and measure extracellular vesicles (EVs) is transforming the diagnostic landscape in a variety of fields such as immunology, transplant medicine, neurology, cardiology, and oncology.

The ClarityDX platform technology is well positioned for future pipeline products including tests for screening, early diagnosis, complementary diagnosis, monitoring, and management for a large variety of diseases and medically-related events.

The research and development team at Nanostics continues to expand the ClarityDX platform through our own development and in partnership with others to include additional liquid biopsy diagnostic tests to improve patient care.

Development of the ClarityDX platform for use with many disease targets.
