••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Business Description

Industry: Computer Hardware » Scientific & Technical Instruments
Compare:A, ROP, GRMN, HXGBY, TRMB » details
Transgenomic, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware on March 6, 1997. The Company is a biotechnology company advancing personalized medicine in the detection and treatment of cancer and inherited diseases through its proprietary molecular technologies and world-class clinical and research services. Its operations are organized and reviewed by management along its product lines and presented in the following three complementary business segments: Clinical Laboratories, Pharmacogenomics Services, and Diagnostic Tools. Its clinical laboratories specialize in genetic testing for cardiology, neurology, mitochondrial disorders, and oncology. Located in New Haven, Connecticut and Omaha, Nebraska the molecular clinical reference laboratories are certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) as high complexity labs and its Omaha facility is also accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Its Contract Research Organization located in Omaha, Nebraska provides Pharmacogenomics research services supporting Phase II and Phase III clinical trials conducted by its pharmaceutical customers. This lab specializes in pharmacogenomic, biomarker and mutation discovery research serving the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries worldwide for disease research, drug and diagnostic development and clinical trial support. Its proprietary product is the WAVE System which has applicability to genetic variation detection in both molecular genetic research and molecular diagnostics. The Company also distributes bioinstruments produced by other manufacturers ('OEM Equipment') through its sales and distribution network. Service contracts to maintain installed systems are sold and supported by its technical support personnel. The installed WAVE base and some OEM Equipment platforms generate a demand for consumables that are required for the continued operation of the bioinstruments. It develops, manufactures and sells these consumable products. In addition, it manufactures and sells consumable products that can be used on multiple, independent platforms. These products include SURVEYOR Nuclease and a range of chromatography columns. The Company's Laboratory Services division faces competition from a number of companies offering contract DNA sequencing and other genomic analysis services, including SeqWright and others. Competition for its WAVE System arises mainly from DNA sequencing and genotyping technologies. Competitors in these areas, among others, include Applied Biosystems, Qiagen, Roche, Sequenom and others. Competition for some of its non-WAVE consumable products comes from numerous well-diversified life sciences reagent providers, including, among others, Invitrogen, Qiagen, Roche, Stratagene and Promega. The Company is subject to a variety of federal, state and municipal environmental and safety laws based on its use of hazardous materials in both manufacturing and research and development operations.
