CombiMatrix Corporation Research Report

Shares for molecular diagnostics company CombiMatrix surged by 136 percent on the anticipation that it will report impressive fourth quarter results on February 27, 2013. One of the reasons to be excited for the company's report is its recent statement regarding significant growth in its prenatal testing segment. A preliminary growth rate of 172 percent was recorded for the quarter, as well as a preliminary growth rate of 171 percent for the full year. This growth was driven by the company's shift in focus to prenatal molecular diagnostics markets, where chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) is quickly becoming a standard of care. With solid growth in the company's prenatal test volumes, this anticipation reflected by the company's rise in share price is well merited.
