Bio-Techne

The firm said that with the approval, the firm's liquid biopsy-based ExoDx Prostate IntelliScore (EPI) test is now available in every state.

The firm reported double-digit organic growth in North America, Europe, and China, driven in part by sales from its antibody portfolio and Simple Western instruments.

The planned product would combine RNA assays for NanoString's GeoMx digital spatial profiling instrument with Bio-Techne's RNAscope imaging reagents.

The partnership will accelerate the development of molecular diagnostics in the Chinese market, Minneapolis-based Bio-Techne said.

In fiscal Q2, the firm's Diagnostics and Genomics revenues were $39.3 million, up 6 percent year over year from $37.1 million.

Among the updates provided at the conference on Wednesday, Luminex discussed development and plans for the Verigene II system, and GenMark touted its ePlex test portfolio.

Bio-Techne CEO Chuck Kummeth said the firm is busy integrating the acquired Exosome Diagnostics business and preparing it for accelerated growth.
