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

Researchers showed it could differentiate pancreatic cancer cases from controls with high sensitivity, and believe it could work similarly for other cancers or in infectious disease.

The company said that it can distinguish patients suffering from lupus from those with other autoimmune diseases using its antibody array platform.

The company developed the instrument using in-licensed technology coupled with its own chemistry and other technology for exosomal protein analysis.

The team will use the new research grant to further develop the Stockholm3 prostate cancer test and to design follow-on diagnostics to help treat patients with the disease.
