About New Day Diagnostics
New Day Diagnostics was formed in 2014 with a mission of improving early detection of cancer. Our flagship products, Ovation and Procare, are being developed to provide reliable diagnostic tests for ovarian and prostate cancer. Beyond improving test performance, we strive to create tests that are simple and accessible to promote more regular testing of devastating diseases. As such, we’ve based our tests on novel biomarkers present in urine, which will offer efficient, noninvasive, and affordable detection methods to people all around the world. We hope that our diagnostics will have significant impact by enabling earlier intervention and improved survival.
