Innovative Research and Production Company Diamedica was established in 2004 on the base of Immunochemistry Laboratory at the Institute for Physiologically Active Compounds (IPAC) of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Experimental Biochemistry and Immunology Department of Moscow Research and Practical Centre of Narcology.
The fundamental research on drugs of abuse metabolism and mechanisms of anti-drugs antibodies formation was launched in IPAC 20 years ago. The test-systems for latent drug addiction were developed in 2001, and then certification and sales of the kits were launched. From 2001 till 2004, those activities had been carried out on the base of Diagnostmedica Company. In 2004, the project won the START competition held by The Foundation for Assistance in Development of Small Companies in the Field of Science and Technology. Diamedica company was founded within the frameworks of this project.
- Development and manufacturing of test kits for immunoenzymometric detection of:
antibodies to drugs (revealing drug intake and latent drug users)
natural antibodies to endogenous bioregulators (opioid peptides and biogenic amines) for determination of drug taking endurance and severity
natural antibodies for early diagnostics of diseases, immune status assessment, therapy effectiveness control and predisposition to different diseases reveal
drugs in urine
- Development and manufacturing of reagent test kits for immunochromatographic detection of narcotic compounds in oral fluids
- Diagnostic laboratory carries out blood and urine drug testing, detection of antibodies to endogenous bioregulators (beta-endorphin, serotonin, dopamine, histamine, etc.)
Diamedica is involved in development of test kits for blood detection of antibodies to drugs, natural antibodies to endogenous bioregulators for determination of immune status of a human and assessment of his/her aptitude to drug addiction.
Diamedica′s scientific achievements were awarded by:
Gold medal at the 35th International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva (2007)
International award of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)for development of diagnostic method of drug intake (2007)
Annual WIPO award for development of unique DIANARK test kit for detection of latent and early forms of drug addiction
Silver medal at the International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva for research on “Diagnosis of game addiction” (2008)
