The Spectrum Compact instrument.

The firm's target market for the instruments will include existing customers in the forensics and food testing spaces.

The firm has seen a small handful of false positives for the test in thousands of samples run since the study, but attributed them to biological features.

The companies will recruit and track a cohort of women to study environmental, genetic, and lifestyle factors that may contribute to fertility outcomes.

NanoString said its sequencing technology harnesses its expertise in optical barcodes and that it would develop it for clinical use to complement its existing products.

The company, a spinoff from genomics service provider Macrogen, plans to offer patients an exome test that screens for more than 4,000 rare diseases.

Some people who harbor genetic variants associated with disease show no signs and may give insight into the continuum of symptoms, Spectrum reports.

Some 57 snow monkeys at a Japanese zoo were found to be rhesus macaque hybrids, which are banned in Japan.

British researchers say they've been removed from EU grant applications, according to the Guardian.
