New FDA recommendation positive for lab companies, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says that the FDA has issued draft guidance to streamline its approval process for next-generation sequencing, or NGS, germline tests, which could be a substitute for a Premarket Notification or 510k. The analyst believes streamlined regulatory approaches for NGS tests are a positive for labs with NGS laboratory-developed tests such as CareDx (CDNA), Quest Diagnostics (DGX), Genomic Health (GHDX), LabCorp (LH), Myriad Genetics (MYGN), Natera (NTRA), Oxford Immunotec (OXFD), Sequenom (SQNM), Trovagene (TROV), and Veracyte (VCYT).

Piper Jaffray positive on Imugen acquisition by Oxford Immunotec
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says the acquisition of Imugen, a clinical laboratory focused on developing and performing specialized testing for tick-borne diseases, by Oxford Immunotec is a "good strategic fit" given call point overlap. Oxford's vision is to leverage the exiting sales force and marketing infrastructure to grow its revenue in the U.S., the analyst tells investors in a research note. Quirck also notes that Oxford has more costs than revenue in GBP and today's GBP/USD movements following the "Brexit" vote could be a net benefit. He reiterates an Overweight rating and $25 price target on Oxford's shares.

Final PAMA rule better than expected, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says the final Protecting Access to Medicare Act published Friday by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is better than expected. PAMA is delayed until 2018 from 2017 as expected, Quirk tells investors in a research note. Hospital labs will be required to submit private payer rates to CMS, a positive relative to prior expectations, the analyst notes. He views the decision as beneficial for Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and LabCorp (LH). Further, CMS will require labs to submit only in-network rates and out-of-network "final" rates, which is a positive for specialty labs who have in-network rates at or above Medicare including CareDx (CDNA), Genomic Health (GHDX), Myriad Genetics (MYGN), Oxford Immunotec (OXFD) and Veracyte (VCYT), Quirk writes.
