The regulatory approval means that the assay for minimal residual disease is available to monitor B cell blood cancers in patients in all 50 states.
The assays will combine genomic and gene expression analyses to better understand driver mutations in prostate, breast, and pancreatic cancers.
Through a transcriptomic analysis, the researchers developed a catalog of gene expression with the olfactory mucosa of half a dozen mammals.
The partners will request samples from more than 2,500 existing and new participants in the foundation's Preeclampsia Registry for sequencing analysis.
The firm aims to stabilize and protect its existing molecular diagnostics business over the next 12 to 18 months, CEO Jack Kenny said.
With exome sequences for tens of thousands of Finns, researchers identified deleterious variants linked to dozens of clinically relevant quantitative traits.
The research team said its nanofluidic system increased the proportion of nucleic acid and protein disease biomarkers a billionfold prior to detection.
A Japanese researcher may soon be developing rat and mouse embryos with human cells as part of a plan to eventually develop organs for transplants, according to Nature News.
The new company, whose name was not disclosed, will provide preclinical and clinical immune monitoring and biomarker services to biopharma companies.

San Diego, California-based molecular diagnostics developer Mesa Biotech has launched a respiratory syncytial virus test on its sample-to-answer point-of-care PCR system, the Acula. The RSV test is the second test on the system, which also runs an influenza A/B test and is exclusively marketed in the US by Sekisui under the Silaris brand. It was cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration and CLIA-waived last year for diagnostic use in both children and adults.
