FDA submission

The submission data highlights Parsortix's ability to harvest circulating tumor cells from metastatic breast cancer patient blood samples for downstream analysis. 

The firm said that the shortage of testing in rural America highlights a need for its rapid molecular system, which is small enough to fit in a backpack.

The supplement adds a collection vial to the BD Onclarity test and includes performance data for the BD Viper LT and the BD COR Systems.

The sequencing firm said infectious disease research, diagnostics, screening, and surveillance could all increase demand for its NGS products.

Sepset said its early test for sepsis, a condition that requires rapid diagnosis and treatment, would give clinicians valuable time to identify treatment strategies.

The firm expects to validate its test as a triage tool to identify SARS-CoV-2 patients at risk of sepsis and pursue US FDA Emergency Use Authorization.

The company said it has scaled up production capacity to two million reactions per week and has the potential to scale up to three million reactions per week.

The infectious disease testing firm has developed a sequencing-based coronavirus assay, which it plans to commercialize through its sister firm BioID Genomics. 

The diagnostics firm is conducting a 1,000-person study to find T cell profiles associated with the immune response to COVID-19 and recovery from the disease.

With TMB as a CDx, the drug will be available to more patients as a salvage option, but doctors will still need to consider the complex biomarker amid evolving research.
