The firm is validating the test and expects results to be available in the second quarter of 2015 with commercial launch of the test following around mid-year.

The funding follows a $19.3 million Series A round Sera closed in 2011 and will support development of its proteomic test for assessing women's risk of preterm delivery.

Sera Prognostics said this week that it has completed enrollment of 5,500 women in its Proteomic Assessment of Preterm Risk clinical study supporting the validation of its PreTRM proteomic test for predicting risk of preterm birth.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Inova Translational Medicine Institute and GNS Healthcare today announced a deal to develop and commercialize computer models based on GNS' technology.

Sera Prognostics said this week that it has exceeded enrollment of 4,000 subjects in its Proteomic Assessment of Preterm Risk clinical study supporting the validation of its proteomic test for predicting risk of preterm birth.

After years of technical setbacks and challenges, mass spec-based clinical proteomics is "ready for prime time," a Thermo Fisher Scientific researcher told ProteoMonitor this week.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Agilent Technologies today said that it will collaborate with sera prognostics on the development of proteomic assays for early prediction of pregnancy complications.
