NEW YORK, Oct. 11 (GenomeWeb News) - Dutch diagnostics firm Agendia has closed a second round of financing worth "double-digit" millions of dollars to accelerate the development of microarray-based late-stage products into diagnostic tests, the company said today.

The financing round was led by existing investors Gilde, AXA, and GLSV, and new investor Van Herk Group.
