Invitae

The first application of the technology will be for noninvasive prenatal screening followed by cancer liquid biopsy testing.

Invitae said this week that it completed its acquisition of Singular Bio on June 19.

Senators said they'll narrow the draft bill containing changes to US patent law before submitting it to the Senate Judiciary Committee in July.

The acquisition will bring to Invitae single-molecule, cell-free DNA analysis technology and enable lower cost NIPS testing.

The testing programs are financially supported by the drugmakers, and will allow Invitae to provide free testing and genetic counseling for rare inherited retinal disease and primary immunodeficiencies.

Individual stocks in the GenomeWeb Index were mostly down in May, with 21 of the 30 stocks posting losses and nine stocks recording gains.

Invitae will perform genetic testing using a 58-gene panel and Horizon will provide financial support for the program aimed at improving diagnosis of the rare condition.

For the three months ended March 31, the firm generated $40.6 million in revenues, missing the consensus Wall Street estimate of $47.2 million.

Individuals identified as needing homozygous FH evaluation will receive confirmatory genetic testing from Invitae and genetic counseling from Genome Medical.

Research presented at ACMG by Invitae suggests that clinically actionable variants in cancer patients are missed by germline testing that is not done with expanded panels.
