The G-BA commissioned a contractor to prepare an evidence report by early 2018 and to gather information for patients by early 2019.

The firm plans to include seven subchromosomal alterations to its NIPT by the end of March and wants to expand into the liquid biopsy market.

Starting Feb. 15, Aetna members will be able to access NxGen MDx's genetic screening and noninvasive prenatal testing as an in-network benefit. 

Going forward, Natera said it will market its Panorama NIPT assay and carrier screening test Horizon directly to physicians.

The investment bank set a price target of $18.00 for shares of the molecular diagnostics company. 

The organization will promote public awareness of cfDNA-based NIPT, encourage legislation supporting testing, and push for reimbursement policy changes.

Natera alleges that Bio-Reference broke a contract by promoting a NIPS test based on Illumina technology over Panorama.

LifeCodexx's PrenaTest will be available to women in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Vietnam, the United Arab Emirates, and elsewhere in the Middle East.

A new study shows that combining size-based and count-based analysis helps determine whether a copy number aberration originates in the mother, fetus, or both.

The acquisition will expand Premaitha's market in Asia, enable it to develop new products, and strengthen its patent position in NIPT.
