Veracyte

Bayer will offer Veracyte's Afirma Xpression Atlas to identify underlying drivers in tumors of late-stage or metastatic thyroid cancer patients resistant to radioactive iodine therapy.

The index underperformed the Dow Jones, the Nasdaq, and the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index, which all swung up on positive coronavirus vaccine news.

Veracyte reported total Q3 revenues of $31.1 million compared to $31.0 million in Q3 2019, beating analysts' average of $23.9 million.

Myriad Genetics' EndoPredict, Agendia's MammaPrint (distributed in Germany by PathoNext), and Veracyte's Prosigna will now be covered by public insurance.

The firm will use the proceeds for working capital and other general corporate purposes, with the potential to acquire or invest in complementary businesses, technologies, or assets. 

The index significantly outperformed the Dow Jones, the Nasdaq, and the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index in July.

For the three months ended June 30, the genomic testing firm reported total revenues of $20.7 million.

MaviDx will develop, validate, secure regulatory approvals for, and commercialize its SARS-CoV-2 and other infectious disease tests, including for influenza, on Veracyte's nCounter system.

The GenomeWeb Index rose more than 9 percent in May, following an 18 percent climb in April, a marked contrast to its negative performance in February and March.
