Labcorp completes acquisition of Vectra testing business

Sept. 14, 2021

Labcorp announced that it has closed its acquisition of select operating assets and intellectual property (IP) from Myriad Genetics’ autoimmune business unit, including the Vectra rheumatoid arthritis (RA) assay.

Earlier this year, Labcorp entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Myriad’s Vectra test, related IP and other RA assets, bolstering its scientific leadership in rheumatology. Specific terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

More than one million Vectra tests have been completed since the product’s launch in November 2010.

Vectra is a non-invasive, blood-based test that analyzes 12 biomarkers to measure RA disease activity. It combines those measures to generate an easy-to-understand score, which indicates the severity of RA inflammation and how well current treatments are working. It also can predict potential, future joint damage.
