Qiagen

The companies have signed a licensing agreement related to bioinformatics tools to enable antimicrobial resistance research.

Qiagen's Q4 revenues of $403.2 million fell short of the consensus analyst estimate though its adjusted EPS of $.40 was in line with Wall Street expectations.

Qiagen's test detects the most frequently occurring somatic mutations in EGFR in less than four hours using real-time PCR on the Rotor-Gene Q platform.

At JP Morgan, Qiagen CEO Peer Schatz discussed a new digital PCR system and handheld reader for TB testing; Qiagen's acquisition of N-of-One; and its new sample prep system.

With the acquisition, Qiagen will integrate N-of-One’s MarkerMine database into its core technology to help customers design new, targeted therapies.

The draft guidelines have intrigued industry players interested in pursuing labeling that would allow their CDx to direct treatment for a class of drugs instead of one drug.

Qiagen and Foundation Medicine will develop tissue- and plasma-based companion tests to identify best responders to the PI3K inhibitor alpelisib

The CDx would guide use of Novartis' BYL719 (alpelisib) in combination with fulvestrant for men and postmenopausal women with HR+/HER2- breast cancer.

Qiagen will provide IUO tests for NeoGenomics to verify, set up, and run in clinical trials and in anticipation of regulatory approval.
