While NanoString will commercialize its nCounter for research use applications, Veracyte will move its current assays onto the platform to reach a global audience.

Veracyte has also acquired Nanostring's Prosigna breast cancer and LymphMark lymphoma assays and plans to develop diagnostic tests using the nCounter platform. 

The method, dubbed GoPhAST-R, was codeveloped by researcher from the Broad Institute and NanoString, which now hopes to work with a partner to commercialize it.

The study supports the use of Envisia to help with the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, particularly in patients without a clear radiological result.

The test is the second of three panels intended to detect pathogens that cause the bloodstream infections that can lead to sepsis.

In addition, Qiagen has partnered with Japan's SRL for companion diagnostic development, and its CareHPV test was added to the WHO list of prequalified IVDs.

The updated guidelines confirm HER2 gene amplification assessed by ISH and protein overexpression assessed by IHC are primary predictors of responsiveness to HER2 therapy.

Validation results presented at the Association for Molecular Pathology meeting demonstrate that the test can be implemented clinically, replacing existing FISH and PCR assays.

Performed on the company's Safetube platform, GFC's Microscreen test uses DNA hybridization to detect biomarkers in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
