The company has previously offered its liquid biopsy tests through an LDT model but sees the timing and the clinical niche as right for a regulatory bid in CSF testing.

The firm's fourth quarter revenues included $18.3 million in commercial test revenue, of which $17.6 million was attributable to COVID-19 tests.

The firm also announced a COVID-19 testing deal with George Mason University and a CyTOF supply and distribution agreement with Zhejiang PuLuoTing Health Technology in China.

The company has developed an analyzer to run PCR, immunochemistry, and cytometry tests at the same time for a variety of diseases including COVID-19.

The pace of development for CRISPR-based infectious disease assays increased as the pandemic progressed, more funding became available, and collaboration accelerated. 

The organization intends to deploy a prototype of the platform in Brussels Airport next summer.

The researchers created a test-on-a-chip technology that takes about 35 minutes to produce a result, and may partner with Ford to produce the chips.

The startup aims to combine its microfluidic platform with a circulating tumor DNA-based assay offered by a potential partner and launch the test by 2022.

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 company's Advanta Dx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assay received Emergency Use Authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration in August.
