Researchers published the most comprehensive data to date showing that Grail's screening approach can detect and distinguish a significant number of cancers.

The panel can detect and differentiate SARS-CoV-2 and 20 other pathogens known to cause serious respiratory disease from nasopharyngeal swabs in symptomatic patients.

The NeuMoDx SARS-CoV-2 Test Strip can run on the firm's fully-automated mid- or high-throughput instruments.

The ID Now COVID-19 test is the second assay from the company to receive EUA from the FDA, following the same designation issued to the Abbott RealTime SARS CoV-2.

GenomeWeb asked a number of prominent researchers in the field via email about their top picks for notable developments or achievements in genomics during the 2010s.

Some of the market's most influential voices, including Kári Stefánsson and Linda Avey, believe that consumer genomics is not on the way out but rather experiencing a period of transition.

A new blood test might be able to detect the presence of some 50 cancers, according to New Scientist.

Undark looks into how coronavirus-related shutdowns are affecting field researchers.

Join MNG Laboratories' Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Peter L. Nagy, and the Clinical Reporting Team as they present multiple case studies illustrating the value of using complementary testing and data analysis methods to increase the clinical sensitivity of MNG’s genetic testing portfolio. The team will highlight cases solved through the application of high resolution CNV assessment, mitochondrial DNA analysis, transcriptome/RNA sequencing, and repeat expansion screening from genome sequencing datasets. After the presentation, there will be a 15 minute Q&A with our speakers.

Join us for a webinar presented by our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Peter L. Nagy, to discuss the benefits of performing and analyzing genome and RNA sequencing together. The increased number of single nucleotide and copy number variants associated with genome sequencing are best interpreted with the help of joint parental testing and the assessment of the functional significance of intronic and regulatory changes with a functional test like the transcriptome.
