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.

Funding for Fluidigm's assay through NIH's RADx program was increased by approximately $22 million for a total contract value of up to about $34 million.

The loan will help fund Scope's development of its PCR One point-of-care molecular diagnostic instrument and related respiratory virus panel.

The company's contract with the NIH offered $12 million total and after initial test verification, Fluidigm will receive approximately $11 million.

Fluidigm's Advanta Dx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assay is an extraction-free saliva-based test to detect nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The prize, organized by the British innovation foundation Nesta, has assembled a series of workshops and support sessions to help prize competitors. 

The seven technologies feature different methods, including CRISPR and microfluidics, and can be performed in many settings and with a variety of sample types.
