Features & Benefits

19 cancer-type specific panels

Each panel assays a range of 150-400 tumor-specific genes, providing flexibility of adding or subtracting genes of your liking

Panels target full exonic and UTR regions, as well as select intronic regions implicated in breakpoints

Designed and verified to provide thorough coverage of specific cancer loci of interest

Ability to detect all types of genomic aberrations, including SNPs, INDELS, rearrangements, and CNVs

Extremely high depth of coverage to detect common and rare mutations

Very low input DNA requirement

Sequencing compatibility with FFPE samples

Customizability of cancer panels to add additional genes of interest

Complete solution, from project design through custom data analysis

Fast turnaround time with expedited options available

Webinar| Non-Classical Sources of Tumour-Specific Antigen in Checkpoint Inhibitor Response

Developing immunotherapies for cancer can be difficult due to the variation of immune response from patient to patient. In this webinar, Dr. Litchfield from UCL Cancer Institute presents his team’s exploratory research using a multiomics approach to better understand the diversity of immune response to cancer and highlights their findings of an alternative source of a tumour-specific antigen in checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) response.
