Researchers from Stanford University School of Medicine and elsewhere examined the genetic underpinnings of functional networks that synchronize resting brain activity.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – T2 Biosystems today said that it has filed a 510(k) premarket submission with the US Food and Drug Administration for its T2Dx system and T2Candida assay.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The W.M. Keck Foundation has awarded $1 million to an investigator at the University of California, Davis to fund development of new molecular imaging tools.

The device could enable researchers to measure the total production of a target protein biomarker over periods of weeks, months, or possibly years, potentially providing data unavailable via single-time-point sampling techniques like blood draws, said one of the researchers.

The company made the disclosures as part of Agilent's fiscal second-quarter earnings report, which showed that total revenues grew 16 percent and that a net loss in the prior-year period swung to a profit in the current quarter.

The revenue from the stimulus orders surpasses a $50 million estimate provided by the firm just a few months ago.
