The IgM test had nearly 100 percent specificity with 1,400 negative samples and 98 percent sensitivity with samples 15 to 30 days after symptom onset.

The test uses the sTRA biomarker to differentiate between different subtypes of pancreatic cancer, including those that are resistant to chemotherapy.

The ratio of IL-6 to IL-10 biomarkers might give clinicians insight into how severe the inflammatory response to SARS-CoV-2 could be in certain patients.

The revenue increase was driven by significant growth in the conglomerate's life sciences segment.

The firm was awarded the funding to validate its monocyte distribution width hematology biomarker for the detection of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children.

The newly authorized test detects IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 with 99.9 percent specificity and 98.3 percent sensitivity, the company said.

The company said that its Access Interleukin-6 assay is designed to assist physicians in the identification of severe inflammatory response in COVID-19 patients.

The FDA does not allow labs to report hs-troponin results below assays' limits of quantitation, which some argue leaves actionable information on the table.

The commercial labs will also receive testing equipment from Beckman Coulter Life Sciences and Thermo Fisher Scientific including RT-PCR instrumentation.
