The China FDA has approved Vela's cell-free DNA extraction kit, which can be coupled with RT-PCR or NGS workflows for further analysis.

The NGS-based test improves on a previous PCR-based version and detects circulating DNA from Epstein Barr virus that is shed from cancer cells.

Freenome will leverage proteomics firm Biognosys' technology to add protein quantification to the development of Freenome's first commercially available screening test.

As part of a collaboration with Freenome, Institut Curie will look for correlations between circulating biomarkers and human response to cancer immunotherapies.
