The company develops microarray-based pathogen detection products based on a proprietary genotyping technology.

The latest round, led by Northpond Ventures, brings the total amount raised by the

company to date to $76 million.

It anticipates using the funds to complete the development of its first set of diagnostic products, and for a set of clinical studies to obtain regulatory clearance.

The Beijing-based firm said it will use the funding for research and development, to obtain additional intellectual property, and to pursue its strategic goals.

The company plans to use the new funding to grow its suite of genomics applications to more than 50 in 2018.

The financing will support business expansion, continued technology development, and expenses related to a planned listing at the end of the year.

The Swedish molecular diagnostics firm will use the proceeds, in part, to fund the planned launch of its Immray PanCan-d assay for detecting pancreatic cancer.

The firm said it will use the funds to commercialize Colvera, its liquid biopsy test for earlier detection of recurrent colorectal cancer.

The company entered a securities purchase agreement through which it has raised gross proceeds of $650,000 and paid down a portion of the company's debt.
