CDx Diagnostics completed a majority recapitalization with Galen Partners, a healthcare-focused growth equity investment firm, and San Francisco-based White Oak Healthcare Finance, who led the debt financing.

CDx is a specialized anatomic pathology laboratory that utilizes proprietary technology, including advanced neural-network analysis and deep artificial intelligence tools, to enhance the detection of precancerous and cancerous tissue initially in the esophagus and oral cavity.

Mark Rutenberg, CDx’s founder and CEO, said, “I am confident that with the support and guidance of Galen Partners and White Oak, we will now accelerate our rapid growth in revenue, profitability, and clinical acceptance. More importantly, we will be able to advance our progress in making oral, throat, and esophageal cancer diseases of the past.”

“CDx has developed and patented a proprietary tissue sampling and analysis platform that allows for successful detection of dysplasia in tissue,” said White Oak’s managing director and partner, Isaac Soleimani. “The CDx platform is clinically shown to be more effective at detecting high grade esophageal cancer compared to traditional testing methods, creating the opportunity to become the standard of care.”
