The company said it plans to use the proceeds of the offering for general corporate purposes.

The firm said its Focus::Myeloid NGS-based panel for myeloid malignancies provides information for diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and risk stratification of patients.

The company's revenues saw strong growth on gains in its biopharma services and clinical services operations.

Cancer Genetics will provide the services to support H3's development of H3B-8800, a Phase I small molecule-based blood cancer drug candidate.

The panel targets actionable markers in seven genes to provide information related to patient stratification, disease management, and treatment selection.

The test is a microarray-based assay that analyzes the expression of 2,000 genes to identify the most likely tissue of origin for 15 common tumor types.

The Rutherford, NJ-based cancer molecular diagnostics firm will use the proceeds for general corporate purposes.

CGI's biopharma services accounted for most of its revenues, but clinical services revenues were up 181 percent on the October acquisition of Response Genetics.
