To help fund the acquisition, Yourgene Health is planning to sell at least £10.0 million in newly issued shares to institutional investors.

The company presented new data on the performance of a multi-pronged liquid biopsy assay in detecting colorectal cancers across a range of clinical stages.

The acquisition will result in a new DLS division called HudsonAlpha Discovery that will provide a range of services to the pharma, biotech, and diagnostics industries.

Under the agreement, Bellwether researchers will join the team advancing Guardant's LUNAR early cancer detection and monitoring assays.

The company said that it plans to use Protagen's assets to further the development and commercialization of its EarlyCDT cancer diagnostics.

DermTech develops diagnostics for skin cancer and other skin diseases, and provides molecular pathology services through its CLIA-certified lab.

The firm said the purchase will allow it to better provide software tools to customers in the chemistry, pharmaceutical, and analytical laboratory markets.
