Acacia Research

Acacia Research announced this week that its subsidiary, Combimatrix Molecular Diagnostics, has launched the third version of its Constitutional Array Genetic Test (CA1000) after completing clinical validation.
The test utilizes the company's Bacterial Artificial Chromosome array, which includes over 200 new, validated probes. Combimatrix acquired the probes through its partnerships with the Center of Applied Genomics in Toronto and the Erasmus University Medical Center in the Netherlands.
The CA1000 improves upon the previous version, the CA850, “by virtue of its increased coverage of genomic loci found in disease ‘hotspots’ further enhancing the test's ability to detect and characterize common genetic disorders,” the company said in a statement.
