IVD and CDx Regulatory Affairs Consulting

Providing global regulatory support for diagnostics across the assay development lifecycle.

Precision for Medicine’s IVD Regulatory Consulting Team has over 100 years of cumulative industry experience in In Vitro Diagnostics (IVDs), instruments (software and hardware), and specimen collection devices. Our experts offer comprehensive regulatory planning and strategy for all types of IVDs and Companion Diagnostics (CDx) across all scientific methodologies and therapeutic areas. We design and execute on regulatory solutions to facilitate global clinical trial assay testing and registrations in the United States, Canada, European Union, United Kingdom, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Japan, and Australia, among others.


Diagnostic regulatory support, from bench to bedside

Bringing a product from development to market can be challenging to navigate, which is why it is crucial to have a team of experts who know the ins and outs of the development life cycle for your diagnostic or Companion Diagnostic (CDx). Our team of In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) Regulatory Affairs experts are ready to walk you step-by-step through these processes and guarantee to streamline the path to success for your IVD product.

200 IVD and CDx Presubmissions, IDEs, ITAs, and Annex XIV Submissions
250 510(k), Special 510(k)s, EUAs, De novos, PMAs, PMA supplements for IVD and CDx submissions in the US

We support the transition of laboratory developed tests (LDTs) to IVDs through the 510(k), de novo, or PMA pathways.

Our experts develop customized regulatory roadmaps, clinical trial enabling submissions, analytical and clinical trial designs, and regulatory submissions for commercialization of kit-based IVDs and CDx.
