The deal gives Beckman Coulter non-exclusive distribution rights in the US and Canada to the NGS library preparation kits for cell-free DNA in plasma.

The agency will genotype existing extracted DNA samples from individuals with substance abuse disorders, with data being made public after six months.

The researchers said that the methylation mark could potentially be used as a noninvasive biomarker for certain tumor types. 

Using whole-exome sequencing early in the diagnostic process could save $3,500 on average in patients who obtain a diagnosis from it and $1,700 in patients who do not.

Two separate studies concluded that in most SEO cancer cases what they are seeing are two separate early-stage tumors, instead of late-stage cancer.
