Atossa Genetics Inc. (NASDAQ:ATOS)
Pharmacogenetics tests help doctors prescribe drugs and doses best suited for each person based on an analysis of their genetics.
ATOS recently reported that its subsidiary, The National Reference Laboratory for Breast Health, Inc. (the NRLBH), has begun to offer pharmacogenetics testing. ATOS' NRLBH provided information about this new test, including:
- Since first making the test available in late October 2014, the NRLBH has now processed more than 500 pharmacogenetics tests for U.S. patients with an average retail price of approximately $1,700 per patient. ATOS' NRLBH is also in the process of offering the test in select European markets
- The NRLBH plans to utilize its third-party reimbursement firms, FedMed, MultiPlan and HealthSmart, to maximize the amount and speed of collections and help ensure that insurance companies that are members of these organizations pay for this test for their covered patients. Approximately 20% of Americans are covered by MultiPlan, and FedMed has more than 40 million members.
ATOS expects that the pharmacogenetics testing revenue should add substantially to the company's bottom line and help finance its therapeutic development and device business in a non-dilutive manner.
ATOS is focused on improving breast health through the development of laboratory services, medical devices and therapeutics.
