Gencurix's assay can be used to select which non-small cell lung cancer patients will respond to tyrosine kinase inhibitors.

An international team of researchers has developed an assay to detect chromosome 1q21.3 amplifications that are markers of breast cancer recurrence.

The company acquired GnuBio, which was developing a droplet-based sequencing platform, in 2014 for $39.7 million in cash and $10 million in contingent payments. 

The company believes its product, called Constellation, will differentiate itself from current commercial offerings in terms of throughput and multiplexing capability.

Investigators plan to use the method in future longitudinal monitoring studies based on the sensitivity and ease demonstrated in their early experiments.

The sales decline was largely due to a slowdown in productivity related to the recent launch of the company's global enterprise resource planning system in Western Europe.
