SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, USA, April 21, 2020 / -- Quadrant Biosciences Inc (Quadrant Biosciences) announced today that the American Medical Association (AMA) has issued a new CPT® Proprietary Laboratory Analyses (PLA) code for its Clarifi ASD™ autism saliva test. Clarifi ASD was commercially launched in December 2019 and is the world’s first commercially available saliva test for autism. This PLA code was published online with an effective date of April 1, 2020 (0170U). PLA codes are alpha-numeric CPT codes with a corresponding descriptor for labs or manufacturers that want to more specifically identify their test.

This is an important milestone in expanding the commercialization of the Clarifi ASD test in the United States, according to Quadrant Biosciences Founder and CEO Rich Uhlig. “Being issued a unique CPT PLA code represents a major step toward securing Medicaid, Medicare, and private payer reimbursement for the Clarifi ASD test. Issuance of this CPT PLA code furthers our overarching objective to make this test available to all patients and families who need it, regardless of means."

Clarifi ASD, the world’s first saliva test for autism, was commercially released in the US in December 2019. Developed in collaboration with SUNY Upstate Medical University and Penn State College of Medicine, the test provides a probability of an autism diagnosis based on epigenetic biomarkers in the saliva. Clarifi ASD is prescription use only and is currently available in all states in the U.S. except New York.
