Financial terms were not disclosed.
 
“This collaboration with Amgen is indicative of how Transgenomic’s proprietary molecular technologies are advancing personalized medicine,” said Craig Tuttle, chief executive officer of Transgenomic. “This highly precise, innovative test was developed at Transgenomic’s laboratories, which excel in genomic and genetic analysis, novel technology development, and its application in clinical research and trials.”
