The company was able to ramp up recruitment for its pivotal ECLIPSE trial after hurdles caused a falloff during the earlier months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company believes the pandemic will accelerate the adoption of its cancer diagnostics as patients and doctors look for faster and more convenient tests.

The company recently had a second pre-submission with FDA and expects to begin a prospective trial of its test in the second half of this year.

The firm reported that revenues from screening products fell 34 percent year over year, but that it took in $34.6 million in revenues from COVID-19 testing.

Most of the disease risk carriers identified in the Healthy Nevada Project did not meet clinical guidelines for screening, according to the new analysis.

The researchers said their new study supports the clinical utility of their test, which combines genomic and drug screening analyses of organoids to guide cancer treatment.
