The firm reported $3.5 million in revenue for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2016, and $12.9 million for the full year.

CombiMatrix said the move will increase access to the test in the state for women experiencing recurrent pregnancy loss.

The company's testing was successful in more than 90 percent of cases over almost four years, and detected a wide variety of abnormalities.

Ambry's new lab provides a streamlined, automated workflow that has allowed the company to triple its daily testing volume since it opened more than four months ago. 

The company reported an 18 percent increase in the number of reproductive health tests completed during the quarter. 

Low-coverage, whole-genome sequencing had a diagnostic yield of up to 53 percent in prenatal and postnatal samples referred for chromosomal analyses.

Researchers found that array-based testing and exome sequencing contributed uniquely to ASD diagnosis, and that the diagnostic yield of testing was higher in complex autism cases.

Chromsomal array testing had a higher diagnostic yield in the study than standard procedures, and could have value as a first step before referring patients to further tests.

The statement touches on issues such as the reporting of secondary findings, adult-onset conditions, incest, and non-paternity results.

The results confirm in the context of normal clinical practice what earlier studies saw in research populations, solidifying the prognostic role of cnLOH independent of other measures.
