Predictive Buys OncoDiagnostic Lab

Xconomy Boston — 

Predictive Biosciences, a Lexington, MA-based developer of diagnostics, said today it has acquired Cleveland, OH-based OncoDiagnostic Laboratory. By acquiring the company, founded in 1985, Predictive has obtained a certified pathology lab that serves urologists, gastroenterologists, dermatologists and other specialty physicians around the country. The facility will provide a commercial base of operation for Predictive, which is seeking to commercialize a non-invasive, urine-based diagnostic test for bladder cancer during 2010.
