Using transcription data from cells and nuclei, the researchers uncovered heterogeneity within cardiac cells and mapped them to particular regions of the heart.

The Boston-based firm is pursuing nanopore technology as a readout for its unique information-encoding format, which could help customers store vast amounts of data.

The firm presented data at the European Society for Medical Oncology Virtual Congress last weekend showing how its method could identify signs of early-stage cancers. 

Both RT-PCR tests are for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2, influenza A, and influenza B from throat swab samples.

With plasmid and chromosomal sequence data, European investigators identified three main routes for carbapenem antibiotic resistance spread in Klebsiella pneumoniae.

Investors included Bruker, whose MALDI mass spectrometry imaging platforms could have synergies with Ionpath's Multiplexed Ion Beam Imaging technology.

The nanopore sequencing-based test is designed to both diagnose SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as monitor mutations that may affect efforts to combat the virus.

Both of the RT-PCR-based tests use healthcare provider-collected samples and may be used by any lab CLIA-certified to perform high-complexity tests.

Autophagy-associated genes appear to be important for immune evasion, but losing multiple of these genes could also make cancers resistant to T cell activity.

With array and exome data, Australian investigators saw apparent ties between amelanotic/hypomelanotic melanoma and rare albinism gene changes.

The center, based in Barcelona, Spain, has built a search tool for quickly locating genetic variants and associated metadata for the novel coronavirus.

The second EUA for a test that targets the ORF1a and N genes is for an automated version of a manual test that had been granted EUA in August.

Revenues have begun to recover in Q3, driven by a ramp in SARS-CoV-2 testing, and the firm now expects full-year 2020 revenues to exceed its prior guidance.

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.

Interim results from a study in the Netherlands suggest whole-genome sequencing can be done fast enough to uncover treatment targets in metastatic cancer patients.

In the study, thirty percent of patients receiving a genome sequencing test obtained a new primary molecular genetic diagnosis.

The investment firm said that Grail's revenue trajectory is uncertain, and given the firm's operating loss, it will significantly dilute Illumina's earnings.

In a PrecisionFDA challenge, DeepVariant calls of PacBio HiFi reads topped 99 percent precision and recall for SNVs and indels, bringing HiFi in line with Illumina. 

The test is designed to detect two regions within the virus' nucleocapsid gene in upper respiratory specimens, according to the Puerto Rico-based company.

Promega will develop its microsatellite instability assay as a companion diagnostic for Incyte's anti-PD-1 drug candidate retifanlimab in endometrial cancer.
