  • Publication number: 20210166813
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining whether a test subject has a disease condition. In one aspect, the method includes determining at least first and second genotypic data constructs for a test subject, formed from data collected from first and second sample from the subject, respectively, at different times. The first and second genotypic data constructs are inputted into a model for the disease condition, thereby generating first and second model score sets for the disease condition, respectively. A test delta score set is determined based on a difference between the first and second model score sets. The test delta score set is evaluated against a plurality of reference delta score sets, to determine the disease condition of the test subject, where each reference delta score set is for a respective reference subject in a plurality of reference subjects.

  • Publication number: 20200206737
    Abstract: Systems and methods for conducting designated reactions that include a fluidic network having a sample channel, a reaction chamber, and a reservoir. The sample channel is in flow communication with a sample port. The system also includes a rotary valve that has a flow channel and is configured to rotate between first and second valve positions. The flow channel fluidically couples the reaction chamber and the sample channel when the rotary valve is in the first valve position and fluidically couples the reservoir and the reaction chamber when the rotary valve is in the second valve position. A pump assembly induces a flow of a biological sample toward the reaction chamber when the rotary valve is in the first valve position and induces a flow of a reaction component from the reservoir toward the reaction chamber when the rotary valve is in the second valve position.
