“Illumina is the leading provider of genomic sequencing instruments and reagents. Illumina’s shares appreciated 3.8%.
Similar to last quarter, this quarter was relatively quiet for Illumina. The company positively preannounced earnings for the first quarter as catch-up demand for lab genomics was robust.
On the regulatory front, the Federal Trade Commission opposed Illumina’s acquisition of GRAIL, which is ironic considering it was once a part of Illumina before it spun out. I have no way of knowing whether the deal will go through.”
