EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc Announces the Launch of Next Generation Sequencing Technology Precisionpath in Partnership with Greenville Health Systems

EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc announced the launch of its next generation sequencing technology PrecisionPath in partnership with Greenville Health Systems. For the first time patients will have wider access to affordable advanced NGS testing that can help doctors determine the most effective cancer treatments based on an individual's genetic profile. The launch of the PrecisionPath Colon by EKF's subsidiary Selah Genomics, follows a successful one year trial with GHS, one of cancer institutes in the US, and will be the first commercial NGS panel molecular test for invasive colon cancer priced under $1,000 with a target turnaround time of less than 7 days per reportable result. PrecisionPath can be used by oncologists nationally to identify the specific growth drivers for colon cancer in an individual based on their genetic make-up and to, ultimately, ensure the most effective therapy is used at all times during treatment. By identifying the cancer's specific susceptibility to available treatments, PrecisionPath will help oncologists select the most effective options for a patient based on the patient's tumor type. The advantage of the PrecisionPath Colon test panel is that it focusses on a key number of actionable biomarkers which provide maximum clinical utility at a more affordable cost. The panel provides a clear and concise report that differentiates between those genes with proven clinical utility and others under clinical trial investigation. As the body of evidence for clinical utility grows, reports will be updated accordingly, providing doctors with a means to routinely integrate genomic analysis into the everyday care of cancer patients. Initially PrecisionPath Colon will be available across GHS's oncology treatment centres. In Europe, it is predicted that there will be close to 450,000 new cases of colorectal cancer diagnosed in 2015. EKF will then expand the service throughout the US targeting oncologists and pathologists treating patients with invasive CRC. EKF intends to offer PrecisionPath™ in additional indications, including lung cancer, breast cancer and melanoma beginning in late 2015.
