DiaSorin S.p.A.. (7/28/16). "Press Release: DiaSorin Starts Selling Vitamin D Test in Japan". Saluggia.

DiaSorin (FTSE Italy Mid Cap: DIA) is pleased to announce the start of sales of its CLIA 25 OH Vitamin D test in Japan, following the approval of the reimbursement code from the Japanese authorities.

DiaSorin will be the first company to market the Vitamin D test on its LIAISON analyzers family in the Japanese reference laboratories through an exclusive distribution agreement with Kyowa Medex, part of the Japanese Kyowa Hakko Kirin Group, a company that produces and markets diagnostic reagents. Japan, with a population of over 125 million inhabitants, has about 13 million patients suffering from osteoporosis for whom it will be possible to identify the Vitamin D deficiency in human serum through the DiaSorin test.

As already announced during the presentation of the 2015-2017 Industrial Plan, DiaSorin estimates a market penetration for its CLIA 25 OH Vitamin D test in Japan between 2% and 4% within the next five years, for a total amount between 2.5 and 5 million tests.

"With the approval of the reimbursement for the Vitamin D test in Japan, we confirm our commitment to develop the Vitamin D market”, commented Carlo Rosa, CEO of the DiaSorin Group. “As leader in Vitamin D testing, I’m sure that our Group will be able to seize this opportunity in an effective way, as already demonstrated in the past in other countries”.
