“For those who have been too distracted by swine flu to notice: shares of the biotech company Sequenom have plummeted by 77% after the company announced that the extremely promising initial results for its SEQureDx Down syndrome test – which is designed to detect Down syndrome fetuses using blood samples from pregnant women – were “questionable” and had been mishandled by employees.”
