ArcherDx

The deal covers genomic test development services including assay and bioinformatics design assistance and revenue cycle management optimization.

ArcherDX plans to keep its research and development efforts in its current facility and move its clinical and commercial testing operations to Baby Gene's CLIA lab.

The test is intended to identify patients with ROS1, NTRK, and ALK gene fusions for treatment with TP's investigational drug repotrectinib.

Archer will develop and pursue regulatory approval for a companion diagnostic that will help find patients who may benefit from one of Merck's drug candidates.

The team performed anchored multiplex PCR-based next-generation sequencing on 26 genes linked to sarcomas, comparing the method to standard diagnostic tools.

The plaintiffs claim that Qiagen's QIAseq kits infringe Archer's US Patent No. 10,017,810, which covers parts of its Anchored Multiplex PCR (AMP) technology.

The researchers plan to use ArcherDX's technology to evaluate minimal residual disease in pediatric AML patients participating in a clinical trial.

Ambry will offer ArcherDX's immune repertoire sequencing assays to biopharmaceutical customers.

The company intends to use the funds to support the commercial growth of its targeted sequencing assays.
