lung cancer

Veracyte plans to launch a new version of its Percepta test and present data for a nasal swab lung cancer diagnostic this year.

Plans are in place for a Guardant360-based assay to predict response to AsztraZeneca's Tagrisso and for a blood-based TMB test using the larger GuardantOmni panel.

The company reported revenues of $21.7 million compared to $11.1 million in the year-ago quarter, overshooting analysts' expectations of $17.5 million.

The company reported no revenues in Q3 but said it has completed the transition to a new diagnostic platform for its DetermaVu liquid biopsy lung cancer test.

The assay can identify KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and EGFR gene mutations, as well as 19 gene rearrangements of the ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1, and MET genes from FFPE.

The firm said genomic testing volume rose 23 percent year over year, and raised its revenue guidance for full-year 2018.

Biomatrica's sample collection tubes ensure quality preservation of circulating tumor DNA and cells, promoting high-quality liquid biopsy results, Exact said.

The firm's Cell-CT platform takes photos of an epithelial cell spinning through a microfluidic tube to produce a 3D image to find defects linked to lung cancer.

Becton Dickinson got clearance for a platform and test for the rapid identification and determination of antimicrobial susceptibility of gram-negative bacteria.

Precision Pathology will develop the CyPath Lung test for early-stage detection of lung cancer as an LDT for commercial sale by the first-quarter of 2019.
