The firm recently announced that it is developing a new range of clinical flow systems that it expects to launch over the next five years.

The RealTime PCR instrument identifies AML patients with IDH2 mutations who can be treated with Celgene's Idhifa.

The test is intended to detect FLT3 mutations in order to select patients for treatment with Novartis' Rydapt, and has also been approved by the US FDA.

The test, the agency said, is the first authorized by it for use with flow cytometry to detect leukemias and lymphomas. 

The agency approved Novartis' Rydapt for AML patients with FLT3 mutations, who will be identified by Invivoscribe's LeukoStrat CDx.
