Growth was driven by demand in its life science segment, particularly for COVID-19-related products, while the diagnostics segment saw uneven improvement.

The National Institutes of Health's program will support 49 research projects that will develop platforms for future outbreaks.

The agency also helped fund the development of the Revogene SARS-CoV-2 assay, which detects RNA targets directly from viral transport media without pre-dilution.

The total investment comes to more than $283 million for a program focused on COVID-19 testing of people disproportionately affected by the pandemic, the NIH said.

Fluidigm tallied $39.9 million in revenues compared to $26.5 million a year ago, and well above analysts' consensus estimate of $32.5 million.

The CRISPR-based test uses Mammoth's DETECTR BOOST platform and will be compatible with both nasal swab and saliva samples.

The test is designed to detect and visualize abnormal phosphorylated alpha-synuclein — a hallmark of synucleinopathies — in cutaneous nerve fibers.

More than 25 academic, government, and private research institutions will be part of the network, which aims to speed up delivery of testing, therapies, and vaccines.

The awards will support clinical validation, manufacturing, and scale up for SARS-CoV-2 viral antigen and molecular detection.

The two grants awarded will support DiamiR's development of microRNA diagnostics for mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease, and Rett syndrome.
