NanoString said its sequencing technology harnesses its expertise in optical barcodes and that it would develop it for clinical use to complement its existing products.

The test kit runs on standard qPCR platforms in under three hours, and detects 20 cancer-associated biomarkers from four oncogenes. 

The company said it completed 82,000 Cologuard tests during the quarter, a 114 percent growth in test volume during the three-month period.

The collaboration will leverage the firms' technologies to identify patients most likely to develop pancreatic cancer and to detect the cancer in the earliest stage. 

Researchers from the cancer center recently published reverse-phase protein array-based characterizations covering more than 700 cancer cell lines.

In PNAS this week: diatom genetic diversity, microfluidic droplet method for single-cell screening, and more.

Scientific publishers are looking into whether artificial intelligence can help the peer-review process, Wired reports.

Researchers are using gene editing to develop more robust livestock and crops, AFP reports.
