The Chinese company is branching out from its core genomics business to liquid biopsy cancer screening and monitoring as it eyes areas for global expansion.

The Chinese company reported revenues of RMB112.0 million ($16.5 million), driven by growth in sales of both its LDT services and IVD products.

The firm is engaged in multiple clinical validation trials and aims to raise more than $100 million to launch its Helio Liver Test in the US early next year.

The firm intends to commercialize a probe that includes exhaled limonene and other biomarkers to enable clinicians to better identify disease stages.

The firm presented initial study results from the test, which identifies six cancers, showing overall sensitivity at 86 percent and specificity of 95 percent.

A new study aims to compare the detection performance of Helio Health's circulating tumor DNA assay with that of other screening modalities.

The company believes the pandemic will accelerate the adoption of its cancer diagnostics as patients and doctors look for faster and more convenient tests.

The company announced during its Q4 earnings call that it had acquired Paradigm Diagnostics and Viomics to fill out its expertise in cancer diagnostics.

The firm reported that test volumes for its Cologuard colorectal cancer screening test rose 63 percent year over year.

Natera discussed its cancer and transplant rejection testing businesses, while Exact Sciences explained how it will benefit from its Genomic Health acquisition.
