The company reported drops in revenues for both its human health and environmental health units, blaming challenging market conditions for the decreases.

The company touted the recent spate of positive payor coverage decisions it has seen for its ConfirmMDx and SelectMDx prostate cancer tests.

The company attributed the increase to gains in its molecular business, including $7.4 million in revenues from Nanosphere, which Luminex acquired in June.

The company attributed the uptick in revenues to a 100 percent increase in the number of Cologuard colon cancer tests it completed during the quarter.

The company's revenues were in line with analyst expectations, while its adjusted earnings per share of $.87 beat expectations.

The company missed its expectations due to declining orders for its HiSeq 2500 and HiSeq 4000 instruments and one fewer order for its HiSeq X Ten system.

Coming off a nearly 9 percent rise in July, the GenomeWeb Index fell more than 2 percent in August, mimicking the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index, which fell 3 percent.

The company said it achieved record volumes for its AlloMap non-invasive blood test for heart transplant patients.

After reporting FY2016 revenues below market expectations, Myriad discussed plans to increase sales of Prolaris, Vectra DA, EndoPredict, GeneSight, and myChoice HRD.

The company credited the increased revenues to a 12 percent rise in the number of Oncotype Dx tests delivered.
