In a recent study in Blood, the researchers showed that a higher allelic burden after transplantation was associated with higher risk of relapse and mortality.

The company also said it launched a new comprehensive diagnostic called HeartCare for surveillance of heart transplant patients.

The researchers were able to diagnose 17 patients with short telomere syndrome based on telomere length combined with targeted sequence data.

The company outlined its plans to launch a kidney transplant rejection test that is based on cell-free DNA in 2019 and described its progress in breast cancer research.

Cornell researchers plan to test cell-free DNA in a prospective study for diagnosing infection and antimicrobial resistance in kidney transplant patients.

The firm said momentum from the launch of its kidney transplant test Allosure drove the overall revenue increase.
