The company will now be able to market the test, which algorithmically weighs molecular markers and clinical information, in all 50 US states.

The company said adopters are ordering tests in areas of great interest, like CTC and blood biomarker monitoring, despite a lack of reimbursement.

The group will define and quantify Stroma Liquid Biopsy biomarkers in Leiden University-collected sera to correlate them with Leiden's tumor-stroma ratio scoring methods.

The firm hopes for a decision from the FDA later this year for its breast cancer drug candidate alpelisib, following results from a late-stage trial.

The company's total revenue for the three months ended March 31 was $108.8 million compared to $92.6 million in the first quarter of 2018, exceeding analyst expectations.

The test is designed to determine breast cancer risk by analyzing a number of factors including breast density, breast biopsy history, and a polygenic score.

The group published results showing its method can faithfully recapitulate genome-wide measures of DNA repair deficiency using much smaller sequencing panels.

The company believes that blood-based exome sequencing can increase the applicability of its Signatera assays and could serve as a reflex to interrogate detected recurrences.

If cancer patients carrying the variants could be identified early, their therapeutic strategy could be altered to reduce their risk of cardiomyopathy.

Research presented at ACMG by Invitae suggests that clinically actionable variants in cancer patients are missed by germline testing that is not done with expanded panels.
