Life Technologies Acquires Pinpoint Genomics and CLIA-Approved Lung Cancer Test
Date:7/25/2012

lization of chemotherapy can eliminate the need for late-stage, extended therapies.

"We see an opportunity in lung cancer to change the treatment paradigm with more effective diagnostics," said Gregory T. Lucier, chairman and chief executive officer of Life Technologies.  "As Life Technologies moves further into the diagnostics space, we will focus on tests that have strong clinical utility where there is a large unmet need."

Life Technologies Possesses Breadth of Platforms with Diagnostic Potential

Life Technologies possesses a breadth of platforms that can be leveraged in the development of new diagnostics, including next-generation sequencing, Sanger sequencing, qPCR and proteomics.  The company is actively working to drive the development of diagnostic content across multiple platforms, as evidenced by a companion diagnostic agreement with GlaxoSmithKline, a test development partnership with Gen-Probe, and recently announced collaborations with Boston Children's Hospital and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, to develop the company's next-generation sequencers for clinical research in pediatric diseases.

"Since the test was developed and will be run in the Pinpoint laboratory on Life's qPCR platform, in addition to offering an LDT in the United States, we will be able to leverage our existing global installed qPCR platforms, which are currently being utilized in a significant number of clinical labs outside of this country," said Andrews.  "Life Technologies intends to pursue In Vitro Diagnostic certification outside of the United States, so the test can be broadly deployed on the company's regulated platforms including the 7500 Fast Dx for qPCR."
