Following promising data from its Circulating Cell-free Genome Atlas study, the firm decided to pivot its breast cancer trial to support its multi-cancer test.

The team said it will partner with startup Early Diagnostics to commercialize the assay, which integrates DNA methylation analysis and computational technology.

The firm plans to conduct a prospective trial of a pan cancer assay and aims to bring another assay focused on colorectal cancer through FDA clearance.

The company is confident about bringing the test to market despite potential future competition and views it as an easy fit for its existing sales channels.

The team demonstrated that the approach can yield high sensitivity while maintaining near-perfect specificity, but it must now replicate the early results in a much larger study.
