160;current DNA analytical technologies cannot detect.

"Quest Diagnostics has a superb track record of turning cutting-edge genetic research and techniques into clinically validated diagnostics," said Founder, CEO and molecular combing inventor Dr. Aaron Bensimon. "Our collaboration with Quest Diagnostics puts molecular combing on track to fulfill its potential to help improve disease detection and new drug development for patients worldwide."

"Quest Diagnostics has a unique ability to collaborate with innovative companies like Genomic Vision to develop advanced genetic tests that serve unmet patient needs," said Kathy P. Ordonez, senior vice president, discovery and development, Quest Diagnostics. "We look forward to incorporating Genomic Vision's unique DNA combing technology into new diagnostic tests that can help identify the genetic causes of disease missed by other techniques." 

Quest Diagnostics expects to validate and release the first laboratory developed test based on molecular combing, for aiding the detection of individuals affected with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, in 2012. The companies will also focus on developing tests for cancer and neurological disorders, with testing services to be offered to clients of Quest Diagnostics. Quest Diagnostics may also offer molecular combing-based laboratory testing services for new drug development to pharmaceutical companies through its clinical trials business and for research use to academic institutions, beginning in 2012.
