The firm's life science segment grew revenues 8 percent, but revenues from its diagnostics segment saw revenues retreated 4 percent. 

The CE-marked test enables health professionals to distinguish between HIV-1 and HIV-2, and runs on the fully automated Cobas 6800/8800 systems.

The test is the first to be approved for the company's second-generation molecular detection system, but can also be run using the first-generation system alongside other existing assays.

The Medicare contractor proposed coverage for several cancer assays, but would not cover molecular respiratory virus assays or a test for inflammatory bowel disease.

Researches are advancing it mainly for use in mosquito surveillance efforts, but also collected data supporting clinical testing of human samples.

The evidence-based guidelines for testing individuals at risk of latent or active TB infection include recommendations on interferon-gamma release and molecular assays.

Researchers have sequenced and analyzed a genome assembly for a Zika virus reference strain from French Polynesia that might be used as part of diagnostic assays.

Using Quanterix's Simoa technology, the group developed assays to detect C. diff toxins with a high degree of sensitivity and specificity.

The deal gives Agendia continued access to Rubicon's whole-genome RNA amplification technology for its MammaPrint test.
