The firm reported double-digit organic growth in North America, Europe, and China, driven in part by sales from its antibody portfolio and Simple Western instruments.

For the three month-period ended March 31, the molecular diagnostics company's revenues fell to $4.7 million from $9.7 million in Q1 2018. 

OncoCell aims to enter the cancer prognostic space with its noninvasive immuno-genomics RNA transcriptomics prognostic platform to help differentiate patients with aggressive forms of prostate cancer from patients with indolent disease.

Research presented at ACMG by Invitae suggests that clinically actionable variants in cancer patients are missed by germline testing that is not done with expanded panels.

The test will be used to identify men with metastatic, castrate-resistant prostate cancer and germline BRCA mutations who are enrolled in a study for olaparib.

Clinical researchers at AACR discussed a wide range of approaches focusing on several different potential use-cases in the detection or assessment of early cancers.

The projects, set to begin this year, concern prostate cancer, infectious diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, and sleep disorders.

The company is seeking NY State approval for its lab, which would allow it to offer both tests as LDTs, hopefully by the end of this year or early next.
