The company provides molecular based laboratory developed tests (LDTs) comprising MaterniT21 PLUS LDT, a noninvasive prenatal test (NIPT) to detect fetal chromosomal abnormalities; HerediT CF LDT, a carrier screen test to identify individuals with cystic fibrosis or genetic mutations; SensiGene fetal Rhesus D (RhD) LDT, a NIPT to determine the presence or absence of RhD factor by direct detection of the fetal RhD genotype in RhD negative mothers from a maternal blood sample; and VisibiliT LDT, a NIPT to detect fetal chromosomal abnormalities by determining the relative amount of chromosomal material present in circulating cell-free DNA in a maternal blood sample. It also offers a microarray test that uses fetal samples obtained by amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling under the NextView brand; additional carrier screening tests for Ashkenazi Jewish disorders, spinal muscular atrophy, and fragile X syndrome under the HerediT brand; and RetnaGene age-related macular degeneration (AMD) test to predict the risk of a patient with dry or early stage AMD progressing to wet or advanced choroidal neovascular disease within 2, 5, and 10 years. The company serves physicians and client laboratories. The company was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in San Diego, California.

Sequenom Enters Collaboration with UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center with Novel Liquid Biopsy Assay

Sequenom Inc. announced that it has entered into a clinical research collaboration with the University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center. Under this collaboration, Moores Cancer Center will explore the utility of Sequenom's new liquid biopsy assay to comprehensively profile circulating cell-free tumor DNA in blood to enable serial monitoring and assist with therapy selection in cancer patients. This technology has the potential to overcome the challenges and limitations associated with current methods such as imaging and invasive biopsies. Sequenom is currently developing a Research Use Only (RUO) assay with an initial focus on the detection and molecular profiling of late stage non-hematologic malignancies, where tissue biopsies are not available or too risky to obtain. The assay will cover a breadth of cancer types by analyzing over 100 cancer-related genes that are associated with a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved drug treatment, included in professional society guidelines, linked to targeted therapies currently in clinical trials, or part of well-documented cancer pathways. The collaboration with UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center is the first of a series of collaborations with cancer centers worldwide that will utilize the assay as part of their clinical research programs. Sequenom, through its wholly owned subsidiary Sequenom Laboratories, intends to carry out further studies in order to bring to market a liquid biopsy assay for use in patient care in 2016.
