AltheaDx Launches Next-Generation Sequencing Oncology Panel

AltheaDx, Inc. has launched AltheaDx Oncology Panel 150, a CLIA validated next-generation sequencing, or NGS, panel. This panel enables simultaneous testing of 143 solid tumor genes. The AltheaDx Oncology Panel 150 (AOP 150) Assay is a targeted, NGS assay for drug and companion diagnostic development programs. The AOP 150 Assay is based on Thermo Fisher Scientific's Oncomine Comprehensive Assay. It runs on the proven Ion Torrent NGS technology, includes the Ion AmpliSeq library preparation technology, and leverages the Oncomine Knowledgebase, which is one of the collections of oncology data long-trusted by pharmaceutical companies. The AOP 150 Assay is designed to work with minimal sample input per run and is well-suited for analysis of tumor samples extracted from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue, including small biopsies and fine needle aspirates. With a rapid turnaround time, the AOP 150 assay is capable of detecting thousands of clinically and pharmacologically relevant biomarkers, including single nucleotide somatic variants, insertions and deletions. The AOP 150 Assay is designed to enable pharmaceutical companies the ability to make evidence-based decisions as part of their clinical trial programs.
