CEO Brad Gray told investors at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference that he believes the firm's GeoMx has advantages over competitors in the new market.

The group recommends Myriad Genetics' EndoPredict, NanoString's Prosigna, and Genomic Health's Oncotype DX tests for guiding chemotherapy decisions if certain conditions are met.

The agreement amends and restates an existing loan and security agreement between NanoString and SVB to increase the size of the revolving loan facility to $20 million.
