Proteomics International is a medical technology company at the forefront of predictive diagnostics and bio-analytical services.

Proteomics International has pioneered and launched a world-leading predictive diagnostic test for diabetic kidney disease, PromarkerD, and uses its proprietary PromarkerTM technology platform to create a pipeline of novel diagnostic tests.

From state-of-the-art facilities located in Perth, Western Australia, the company specialises in the area of proteomics – the industrial scale study of the structure and function of proteins. The business model is centred on the commercialisation of PromarkerD, with cash burn from R&D and product development offset through provision of specialist analytical services.
