SINGAPORE, Nov. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Guardant Health AMEA has won Frost & Sullivan’s Growth Excellence Leadership Award under the Best Practices Category for 2019 Asia-Pacific Liquid Biopsy for Precision Oncology.
"We are delighted to receive this prestigious award from Frost & Sullivan. This award is a testament to our commitment to helping advanced stage cancer patients in Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) get the right treatment with our breakthrough liquid biopsy, the Guardant360 assay. In as little as seven days upon receipt in the laboratory, we can provide physicians with the results they need to guide appropriate treatment for their cancer patients," said Mr Simranjit Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Guardant Health AMEA.
Since its introduction in 2014, Guardant Health’s flagship product, the Guardant360 assay, has been ordered by more than 6,000 oncologists over 100,000 times for patients with advanced cancer to help select treatment. To date, the test’s performance has been reported in more than 140 peer-reviewed publications, establishing the clinical validity of the assay for several solid tumors. The Guardant360 assay has been successfully used for clinical studies in Japan and South Korea. In Japan, the nationwide screening project which includes LC-SCRUM for lung cancer and GOZILA for gastrointestinal (GI) cancer has helped to accelerate the use of precision medicine by matching cancer patients with approved drugs and experimental therapies in clinical trials.
Through our channel partners in Southeast Asia, Middle East, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India, Guardant Health AMEA is building region-specific expertise, advancing precision oncology and ensuring broader liquid biopsy adoption in AMEA.

Customer impact indicators are equally considered for this award such as best value for price, brand loyalty as well as the customer’s purchase, ownership and service experience.
