Priorities for Q3 include the continued buildup of a commercial launch for the company's BarreGEN test. The firm has started a second clinical validation study for the test.

The company said proceeds will be used for working capital, and may also be used to acquire or invest in complementary businesses or technologies.

The firm has collected evidence supporting the use of its PancraGen to providing the same molecular information for samples from biliary strictures and solid pancreatic lesions as it has done for years in pancreatic cyst fluid.

Veracyte will offer 5 million shares at $10.25 per share. It has granted underwriters an option to purchase an additional 750,000 shares.

A 19-miRNA panel showed high sensitivity and specificity for differentiating benign and malignant thyroid nodules.

Cigna began covering the company's ThyGeNext next-generation sequencing-based test for thyroid cancer risk assessment in 2017.

Veracyte anticipates that it can tap into the growing precision medicine market by leveraging its database of RNA sequencing data for thyroid and lung cancer. 

The firm beat analysts' consensus estimates on both the top and bottom lines, and it raised its 2018 annual revenue guidance.

The tests have received coverage decisions from a number of Blue Cross Blue Shield plans this year including ones in California and New Jersey.

The study demonstrates that Veracyte's new test improves upon an earlier version in its ability to identify thyroid nodules that are likely to be benign.
