ARUP Labs launches PAM50 Breast Cancer Intrinsic Classifier.

NanoString is betting that its test will predict treatment benefit for specific classes of chemotherapies, which will differentiate it from other genomic breast cancer tests on the market.

Bioclassifier has licensed to NanoString the rights to develop in vitro diagnostic and research products based on the so-called PAM50 gene signature and NanoString's nCounter platform. Meantime, ARUP Laboratories will next month launch a laboratory-developed qPCR test based on the signature.

CEO Brad Gray said that the firm intends to have the breast cancer intrinsic subtyping assay on the US market for clinical use in two years.

NanoString licensed a gene signature created and validated by Bioclassifier in order to develop diagnostic and research products for breast cancer intrinsic subtyping.

The grants, awarded through the Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project Program created by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, were disclosed last week by the IRS.
