The two entities also plan to work together using the data generated from the tests to do added research.

The firm has billed commercial insurers for more than 17,000 tests and reported test results for more than 15,000 Medicare patients without receiving payment.

While the overall number of oncologists who ordered the company's tests in the third quarter did not change, the frequency with which they reordered fell by about 7 percent.
