Verici Dx plc (AIM: VRCI) is an immuno-diagnostics development company, initially focussed on the kidney transplantation market. The Company's kidney transplant assays will use advanced next-generation sequencing that may define a personalised risk profile of each patient over the course of their transplant journey, and may also detect injury in advance of currently available clinical tests.

The Company develops tests to understand how a patient is likely to, and may be, responding to kidney transplant. There are two leading products for clinical validation and commercialisation:

  • Clarava™, which is a pre-transplant prognosis for the risk of early acute rejection; and
  • Tuteva™, a post-transplant diagnostic focused upon acute cellular rejection, including sub-clinical rejection not being diagnosed through the current standard of care of rising serum creatinine levels.

Verici Dx raised gross proceeds of £14.5m and was valued at £28.35m on Admission to AIM.

Paul McManus, Founder and Managing Director of Walbrook PR, commented: “We are proud to have supported SourceBio in its IPO and return to the market after the Company was taken private in 2016. The Company has significant potential in the COVID-19 space, among other areas, and we look forward to seeing the Company go from strength to strength as it utilises the funds raised through the Placing.

“We are also very pleased to work with Verici Dx. Having worked with Renalytix AI plc since its IPO in November 2018, it is a pleasure to continue this relationship as we support the spin-out of Verici Dx and the Company’s progress going forward. It is exciting to see business thriving in these times and we are extremely positive about SourceBio and Verici Dx’s outlook for the future.”
