T2 said it's in a strong position to achieve planned portfolio milestones over the next two years, including submitting its next test for FDA clearance next year.

The firm plans to launch a test based on an miRNA signature for commercial use within Europe in 2018, after which it intends to seek FDA clearance.

The launch follows a beta that kicked off earlier this year to put the software through its paces with data curators and other scientists.

The developer has presented clinical results that provide a base for completing development of a multi-protein test kit and conducting a clinical trial in advance of FDA submission.  

The Centre for Drug Research and Development has spun out the company to develop a rapid detection test based on the body's immune response.

HudsonAlpha researchers are expected to sequence 20,000 patient tumor and non-tumor samples for ORIEN's Avatar initiative by 2019.
