How your patients tumor is profiled
Tumor tissue is obtained during biopsy or surgery and the oncologist will send that tissue to our CLIA certified laboratory using our special collection kit. Two samples of the tumor tissue are obtained, fixed and live. The fixed tumor tissue is used for a panel of biomarker tests (e.g. BRAF, HER2 etc) using genomics. The live tumor tissue is grown in the lab and used to test the drug response of the tumor to a panel standard-of-care (SOC) drugs. When testing is complete a report is provided back to the clinician with recommended SOC therapies based on the drug response and genomic profiles.
