Ciphergen, Missing Deadline, In Discussions With Quest On Potential Dx Deal

NEW YORK, July 1 (GenomeWeb News) - Missing its self-imposed deadline to announce a diagnostics collaboration, Ciphergen Biosystems today said it is "in discussions" with Quest Diagnostics about a potential diagnostic alliance.

 

The company had promised to announce a "pivotal" diagnostics alliance before the end of June.

 

In a terse SEC filing today, the company said "the nature of the potential alliance, including the financial and business terms, have not yet been agreed to and there can be no assurance that an alliance will be completed between the two parties."
