NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Dako today announced a project with Amgen to develop a companion diagnostic test using Dako's IQFISH hybridization buffer.

The buffer was introduced by Dako, an Agilent company, in 2012 and allows pathology laboratories to run DNA-based hybridization assays "with distinct and higher fluorescent signal intensity compared to traditional FISH assays," Dako said, adding IQFISH reduces diagnostic turnaround time to 3.5 hours from 17 hours.
