About Amplion

At Amplion, we see biomarkers as the key to delivering on the promise of personalized medicine. From drug research and discovery and companion diagnostic development to patient care, we understand that biomarkers will drive personalized care. We publish two products, one paid and one free:


BiomarkerBase™ is the complete knowledge base and alert service for clinical biomarkers. Reduce the cost of understanding the clinical biomarker landscape by more than 10x.


Biomarker Trends™

Biomarker Trends™ is where we analyze key trends related to the development, regulation, and commercialization of biomarkers. It is also where we publish a free annual report summarizing annual trends for biomarker-based IVD tests.

About BiomarkerBase™

BiomarkerBase™ Is the Complete Knowledge Base
and Alert Service For Clinical Biomarkers.

Public sources of biomarker information have the potential to provide clear opportunities for product development and clinical trial planning. The problem is that these sources are challenging to utilize, due to their limited searchability, lack of common nomenclature, and lack of interconnectivity.

Amplion solves these challenges by reviewing public sources that include information about biomarkers in clinical use, aggregating and annotating that information, and providing access to it through a clean and intuitive interface. We also provide an alert service that sends you an email whenever a specific biomarker target or disease is used in a new test, drug label, or clinical trial.

This allows you to maintain a comprehensive understanding of the current clinical landscape for specific molecular targets and the diseases they help to characterize.

Easy to use, the intuitive interface of BiomarkerBase™ provides a very rich source of information about:

  • every biomarker used in an IVD cleared or approved by FDA
  • every biomarker in the label of an FDA-approved drug
  • thousands of emerging biomarkers in clinical trials
  • thousands of biomarkers in Laboratory-Developed Tests (LDTs)

BiomarkerBase™ equips busy professionals in research, business development, and marketing roles to easily stay on top of developments in the clinical/commercial use of molecular biomarkers.
