News on noninvasive prenatal testing, carrier screening, and preimplantation genetic screening.

The US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit sent the case, which had been thrown out in December 2018, back to the trial court.

Under the 2018 agreement, the companies had planned to develop cell-free DNA assays for prenatal screening using Qiagen's GeneReader sequencing system.

The at-home test is designed to measure the presence of PdG, a urine metabolite of the hormone progesterone, to help women confirm successful ovulation.

The firm reported quarterly revenues of $8.4 million and large increases in the number of billable tests delivered in the quarter and over the full year.

The firm plans to use the cash to support commercial expansion of its NIPT to all US states and fund R&D for future diagnostic tests, including liquid biopsies.
