diagnostic software

Prospective research suggests DNA and RNA sequencing can reveal pathogen, microbiome, and host expression features to detect lower respiratory tract infections.

In a recent study in Blood, the researchers showed that a higher allelic burden after transplantation was associated with higher risk of relapse and mortality.

The PGx decision support software that Sonic is adopting includes clinical reporting for 65 genes and can be tailored to a variety of clinical specialties.

Researchers at Columbia University and CHOP believe they can shorten time to diagnosis and improve yield by extracting phenotypic data from EHRs for genomic labs.

The Vanderbilt Center for Undiagnosed Diseases will use FDNA's Face2Gene to help evaluate difficult-to-diagnose patients.

PreventionGenetics will use FDNA's technology to expand the diagnostic ability of its testing and interpretation services.

UgenTec and R-Biopharm's collaboration will cover the software's development, regulatory approval, and launch.

The software provides analysis of HLA typing by NGS on several platforms, including ones from Illumina, Thermo Fisher, and PacBio.

Diagnostic decision support company Variantyx is betting that clinicians need help sorting through NGS data and that the trend is toward whole-genome sequencing.

Work from researchers at Charité in Berlin shows that facial dysmorphology analysis technology may increase the diagnostic rate of exome sequencing.
