Transgenomic Announces Research Agreement with University of Melbourne

Transgenomic Inc. has announced a research agreement with the University of Melbourne to conduct additional clinical validation studies of its Multiplexed ICE COLD-PCR, or MX-ICP, technology. MX-ICP is a high sensitivity DNA amplification technology that allows the simultaneous detection of multiple mutations in multiple genes from tumor samples or any liquid sample, such as blood or urine. MX-ICP can enable identification of known and unknown genetic mutations at limit of detection levels (LOD) of 0.01%, which is far more sensitive than the 5% LOD achieved by next-generation sequencing (NGS) alone and the 20% LOD achieved by Sanger sequencing. Previous studies have suggested that this ultra-high sensitivity makes it possible to analyze DNA shed by tumors into the patient's circulation, eliminating the need to use tissue from invasive and costly tumor biopsies for the DNA analyses needed to serially monitor disease progression and therapeutic benefit in personalized cancer therapy.
