The agreement enables NeuMoDx to bring sample-to-result HPV screening to customers in Europe, where its systems are distributed by Qiagen.

The company said that the decline in revenues reflected lower industry-wide reimbursement rates under PAMA.

The new test uses the number of sequencing reads at specific early and late HPV transcripts as a biomarker for high-grade cytology.

The system has been evaluated by researchers studying cervical cancer prevention as well as other HPV-related cancers, with positive feedback so far.

In an earnings call, the firm said it sees growth continuing for the BD Max, BD Cor, and Phoenix systems, and in China in general.

The Singapore-based company will debut a system at AACC that performs real-time PCR flu A/B testing in less than 20 minutes for the cost of a lateral flow test. 

The high-throughput, scalable BD Cor system for infectious disease diagnostics is now available in Europe with the firm's BD Onclarity HPV assay. 

Last year, the firm saw 21 percent growth in reproductive health, 56 percent growth in oncology, and 49 percent growth in infectious disease testing.

The study showed that the Zeesan test kit and qPCR instrument could be used for near-patient HPV typing of 94 samples in 2.5 hours.

The test will guide clinical decision making related to Inovio's DNA-based immunotherapy to treat cervical dysplasia caused by human papillomavirus.
