The company will use the grant money to develop its resQ-RNA method, which is applicable to FFPE or degraded forensic samples.

The company, based in Constance, Germany, is launching three liquid biopsy assays as a research service this week that differ in target size and sensitivity.

The company's Confidence assays are designed to detect if a woman has a high-risk HPV subtype and, if so, determine her risk of developing cervical pre-cancer or cancer.

Evaluations of the test, which takes about 30 minutes to perform, demonstrated performance equivalent to a gold standard lab-based test.

The new test distinguishes Zika from other viruses in mosquito vectors and launches during an ongoing outbreak that has prompted new CDC guidelines.
