What is Comprehensive Genomic Test for Solid Tumors?

CancerPlex is a next generation DNA sequencing test for solid tumors. The specific coding regions of over 400 known cancer genes are simultaneously determined using a small amount of DNA extracted from tumor samples, including formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue and cell blocks from fine-needle aspirates or effusions.
A Comprehensive Genomic Test for Solid Tumors

CancerPlex is a next generation DNA sequencing test for solid tumors. The specific coding regions of over 400 known cancer genes are simultaneously determined using a small amount of DNA extracted from tumor samples, including formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue and cell blocks from fine-needle aspirates or effusions. This analysis is performed in a single assay, simplifying and streamlining the test ordering process, and eliminating time consuming serial testing. Clinically actionable information unique to each patientís tumor is consolidated into a simple report.

CancerPlex reveals missense changes, insertions and deletions, and previously described rearrangements of ALK, RET, and ROS.

CancerPlex sequences more than 1.5 million nucleotides in 435 genes.

Faster Turnaround Time Means Personalized Treatment Starts Sooner

CancerPlex is the comprehensive genomic test available for the accurate, thorough and timely molecular diagnosis of solid tumors. Utilizing a small amount of a patientís solid tumor tissue, CancerPlex simultaneously sequences hundreds of genes known to play a role in solid tumors. The testing is performed at Genesisí state-of-the-art CLIA laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, and delivers results in only 7-10 business days. This means rapid turnaround of the CancerPlex report, which provides oncologists with an easy-to-understand summary and actionable data to help guide treatment decisions.
