The firms plan to discover and develop fully human neutralizing antibodies that target the SARS-CoV-2 virus, combining Adaptive's and Amgen's respective expertise.

Illumina, LabCorp, and Providence healthcare will join the effort to collect COVID-19 patient samples in the US for immune cell receptor sequencing.

The immune sequencing firm has engaged the FDA in discussions over how to get regulatory approval for one test for several seemingly different diseases.

Aiming to improve patient access to critical drugs and tests, a group of legislators have started a caucus to shore up bipartisan support for personalized medicine.

Adaptive said that Q4 clinical testing volume for its ClonoSeq sequencing assay for minimal residual disease increased 66 percent to 3,218 tests.

The Seattle-based immune sequencing firm will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares.

Although Illumina's failure to acquire Pacific Biosciences stood out in 2019, the upward trend in M&A activity in the omics space in 2018 continued last year.

The immune sequencing firm announced preliminary full-year 2019 revenues in the range of $84 million to $85 million, an increase of approximately 52 percent.

On the second day of the conference, updates came not just from the publicly traded industry giants but also privately held firms of interest, such as Caris and GenapSys.

Genentech will use Adaptive's ClonoSeq assay for MRD testing in a CLL study. Adaptive will receive upfront and sample testing payments of undisclosed amounts.
