“We are excited to bring our innovative cancer early detection blood tests to patients around the world,” said Dr. Henry Zhou, CEO of Mirxes. “This funding will allow us to accelerate our commercialization efforts and make our tests more accessible to people who need them.”

Mirxes’ filing for a Hong Kong IPO is a significant milestone for the company. If the IPO is successful, Mirxes will become the first company outside of China and Hong Kong to list on the Hong Kong stock exchange under a provision that supports biotech IPOs.

The listing would provide Mirxes with access to a large pool of capital and help the company to raise its profile in the global cancer diagnostics market.

“We believe that the Hong Kong stock exchange is the right place for us to list,” said Dr. Zhou. “The exchange has a strong track record of supporting biotech companies, and we believe that our listing will be well-received by investors.”

Mirxes’ fundraising and IPO plans are a sign of the growing momentum in the global cancer diagnostics market. As the cost of cancer care continues to rise, there is a growing demand for early detection tests that can help to prevent cancer or catch it early, when it is more treatable.

Mirxes is well-positioned to capitalize on this growing market. The company has a strong team of experienced scientists and executives, and its blood tests have the potential to make a significant impact on the lives of cancer patients.

With its recent fundraising and IPO plans, Mirxes is poised to become a leading player in the global cancer diagnostics market.
