The firm presented initial study results from the test, which identifies six cancers, showing overall sensitivity at 86 percent and specificity of 95 percent.

GenomeWeb asked a number of prominent researchers in the field via email about their top picks for notable developments or achievements in genomics during the 2010s.

The companies initially plan to validate biomarkers for use with the Oncomine Dx Target Test to identify NSCLC patients for enrollment into clinical trials.

The high-throughput S2000 sequencer is the second instrument Genetron Health has received NMPA approval for, following the S5 benchtop instrument last year.

The methods exploit a feature of Oxford Nanopore's technology that ejects molecules mid-read, enabling a new level of control over human DNA sequencing runs.

Illumina said the NextSeq 2000 and NextSeq 1000 reduce run costs by up to 50 percent, compared to the NextSeq 550 model, while increasing the data output.

Palmetto has expanded the local coverage determination for the Guardant360 liquid biopsy assay to be used with the majority of advanced solid tumors.

In a proof-of-principle study, Ohio State University researchers compared the nanopore sequencing assay to short-read sequencing and capillary electrophoresis.

The researchers profiled 44 cancer-related genes in 191 individuals with familial breast cancer, colorectal cancer, or other forms of early-onset cancer.

The companies will use Foundation Medicine's FoundationOne CDx test as the baseline to define a set of unique variants that the codeveloped assays will monitor.
