Yourgene

Yourgene will use its manufacturing facility at Citylabs in Manchester to ramp up production of the test, which was developed by Novacyt's Primerdesign division.

AdGeniX started distributing Yourgene's Iona test in France in 2015 and has rapidly grown sales for the test, a trend that is expected to continue.

The genotyping test is designed to identify cancer patients with a metabolic disorder that can result in toxicity to a common cancer therapeutic.

Yourgene said it continues to consider additional acquisition opportunities to enhance its earnings and to acquire complementary technologies.

The company said the revenue growth was driven by growing international demand for its noninvasive prenatal testing products and services.

The company had a profit of £3.4 million, or £0.01 per share, for the year compared to a loss of £9.6 million, or £0.03 per share, the previous year.

Elucigene has been developing in vitro diagnostics for oncology and reproductive health, including tests for cystic fibrosis screening and prenatal fetal aneuploidy screening.

The company said its higher revenues were due in part to international performance including continued penetration of Middle Eastern and Asian markets.

Under the terms of the agreement, Yourgene will offer its NIPT products on Thermo's NGS instruments in Southeast Asia and pay off its debts to Thermo.
