The test is performed on the company's AmpiProbe platform, and the approval expands Enzo's offering of infectious disease tests in New York.

The index gained 1 percent, outperforming the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index, but underperforming the Dow, which gained 2 percent.

The increase was largely due to a 13 percent rise in clinical lab revenues, driven by sales of molecular diagnostic tests, particularly in women's health.

Enzo Biochem, Enzo Life Sciences, and Yale University had originally brought the suit against Life Technologies, now part of Thermo Fisher, in 2004.

The Index gained 2 percent in June, outperforming the Dow and the Nasdaq, but underperforming the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index, which gained nearly 9 percent.

Enzo's patent relates to modified nucleotides for diagnostic and therapeutic applications, and is central to separate ongoing lawsuits with diagnostic developers.

The company also announced that it has received New York State Department of Health conditional approval for three women's health molecular diagnostic tests.

The GW Index outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the Nasdaq Composite, and the Nasdaq Biotech Index.

Revenues from the company's clinical labs segment grew 8 percent this quarter, and revenues from the life sciences business grew 6 percent.

The GenomeWeb Index rose nearly 5 percent in February, on par with the Dow and slightly outperforming the Nasdaq.
