The multi-analyte Zika virus assay was developed by a Luminex partner, GenArraytion, and is available now for research use only.

The company's full-year revenues rose 5 percent, with revenue from assay sales increasing 15 percent for the year and 12 percent for the quarter.

The exchange warned the company that its stock could be delisted if it doesn't meet the $1.00 minimum required closing bid price.
