Genetron's S5 sequencer is based on Thermo Fisher's Ion GeneStudio S5 instrument and is cleared for clinical use by China's NMPA.

The study will compare whole-genome sequencing and RNA sequencing to conventional diagnostic methods in about 450 acute leukemia patients in Sweden.

The cancer test developer will use the funding to commercialize its enrichment-based NGS panels. An IVD test also got CE marked.

Fulgent saw a 75 percent increase year over year in billable tests, leading to revenues of $7.8 million. It also withdrew its 2020 full-year revenue guidance.

The genomics firm is expecting major revenue decreases in every geographic region but sees signs of hope that business can pick up again later in the year.

The French bioinformatics and genomic services company will help Dana-Farber manage clinical research data for the cancer center's new interpretive genomics program. 

The firm said the assays detect all classes of alterations including genomic signatures for microsatellite instability, tumor mutation burden, and loss of heterozygosity.

The firms will evaluate Stratafide, a pan-solid tumor diagnostic test designed to identify actionable genomic alterations in tissue or blood samples.

The approach, called Lung-CLiP, couples machine learning trained on epigenetic and clonal frequency data with the detection of alterations in blood-borne DNA.

An integrated analysis involving prostate cancer patients from China highlighted frequent FOXA1 mutations and deletions in two other genes.
