Brief: First degree relatives of individuals with celiac disease are at elevated risk for developing a similarly severe gluten intolerance disorder. However, a quick screening test for the genetic alterations responsible for encoding gluten recognition immune receptors can rule out celiac disease risk in these individuals. Developed by Targeted Genomics, the DNA-based, non-invasive Gluten ID […]
Brief: Two blood-based biomarkers, cytolethal distending toxin B (CdtB) and anti-vinculin, have been substantively linked with the occurrence of diarrhea-predominant forms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). As a result, an ELISA-based diagnostic test developed by Gemelli Biotech is now able to “rule-in” an IBS diagnosis while “ruling-out” irritable bowel disease (IBD) based on elevated biomarker […]

Irvine, CA—October 2, 2017—ResearchDx, the leading biopharma companion diagnostics provider and Menarini Silicon Biosystems, worldwide manufacturer of image-based cell sorting products and services, jointly announce the launch of DEPArray HER2. The fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)-based assay has been validated as a clinical research laboratory developed test (LDT) and is performed by PacificDx, a CAP/CLIA certified and […]
Inside the heterogeneous tumor tissue samples sent to clinical pathology laboratories for HER2 gene testing are cancer genomes with their own inherent complexity. The biopsy (or surgical excision) tissue represents a mixture of genomes from the tumor and normal stroma. Further compounding the heterogeneity problem, tumor genomes harboring HER2 gene amplifications may have amplified HER2 […]
A web search for the term ‘genomic landscapes’ brings up a surprising number of publications from esteemed journals such as Cell, Science, and Nature Genetics. At first glance it would seem that the words ‘genomic’ and ‘landscape’ do not belong together. However, review of the many ‘genomic landscape’ publications from the past decade reveals a […]

ResearchDx, Inc. announced the completion of a major construction addition to their Orange County headquarters in Irvine California. The company’s building at 5 Mason in Irvine, CA […]
Say the words “HER2 gene amplification” and what immediately comes to mind is breast cancer. But did you know other cancers, including those of the stomach and esophagus (collectively called gastroesophagel adenocarinoma or GEA) can have too many (> 6) copies of the HER2 gene? That’s right, an estimated 20% of GEA cancers harbor an […]
