The firm touted recent Blues coverage decisions for the Afirma thyroid cancer test, and final Medicare coverage policies for the Percepta lung cancer test.

Veracyte said that Quest’s access to half of the physicians and hospitals in the US will provide patients with broader access to the Afirma GEC.

The test is designed to analyze the expression of microRNA biomarkers in indeterminate thyroid fine needle aspirate smears in order to differentiate benign thyroid nodules from malignant ones.

The firm will sell 855,000 shares of its common stock to three investors. It will also sell warrants to the same investors.

The new agreement brings Interpace's total insurance coverage for its thyroid assays to approximately 200 million patients.

The state has given its approval for the company to market its ThyGenX next-generation sequencing oncogene panel for indeterminate thyroid nodules.
