Appistry Teams with Personal Genome Diagnostics to Offer CancerSelect Test through Appistry CloudDx
May 30 14
Appistry, Inc. announced an agreement with Personal Genome Diagnostics to include the company's CancerSelect(TM) panel in Appistry's recently released Appistry CloudDx(TM) genomics testing service. PGDx is among the first organizations to offer lab-developed tests (LDTs) through Appistry's cloud-based service that makes LDTs from leading diagnostic test providers available to physicians across the United States. CancerSelect targets 120 genes of clinical and biological importance to cancer, providing information that can help physicians individualize treatment to a patient's cancer. The CancerSelect panel is sequenced in PGDx's CLIA-certified laboratory, and the analysis is conducted using PGDx's proprietary algorithms that provide extremely high coverage, copy number analyses for 63 genes, and translocation analysis for 17 genes. Appistry will collaborate with PGDx to deliver a report to participating physicians containing a pathological evaluation of the tumor sample; tumor-specific mutations (alterations and substitutions, amplifications, and translocations); a description of mutated genes and pathways along with biologic and clinical implications; full statistics; and therapeutic, predictive, and prognostic information and references, as well as referral information for ongoing clinical trials that might be relevant based on the analysis results. Appistry CloudDx streamlines and simplifies the workflow associated with genomics-based testing, which has been limited in its impact, partly because it requires organizations to amass infrastructure and expertise to deliver relevant results that are usable by physicians. Appistry CloudDx provides a single web dashboard for ordering and tracking the progress of tests and orchestrates the data flow between test providers such as PGDx and requesting physicians and hospitals, thereby ensuring that data and physical samples are transferred and securely managed in accordance with HIPAA and CLIA guidelines.
