Qiagen's partnership and merger agreement with NeuMoDx may help it compete with high-volume molecular testing vendors such as Abbott, Hologic, and Roche.

The clinical trial matching app, which Roche collaborated on with MolecularMatch, is the latest in a series of features that it will introduce in its tumor board solution.

The companies initially expect to incorporate a CDx for Incyte's pemigatinib into Foundation Medicine's existing FDA-approved assay, FoundationOne CDx.

The university health system said that it reduced incorrectly prescribed antiviral prescriptions by almost 11 percent at the sites where it installed the Roche Cobas Liat PCR test platform.

The approval includes the use of either tumor tissue or plasma and follows previous approvals with Genentech's Tarceva (erlotinib) and AstraZeneca's Tagrisso (osimertinib).

In response to public comment on draft recommendations published last year, the USPSTF changed course and retained cotesting as an option.

The Cobas HPV Test is now approved for use as a primary screening test with BD's SurePath and Hologic's ThinPrep PreservCyt Solution.

Revenues for Roche Diagnostics totaled CHF 6.26 billion for H1, driven primarily by demand for immunodiagnostic solutions.
