FT. MYERS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / December 10, 2021 / NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing and global contract research services in oncology, has announced that it will use Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Ion Torrent Genexus System, the first turnkey solution from Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) that automates the sample-to-report workflow to deliver results in as little as a single day, in a phase 1 study sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry.
As part of the preclinical research investigation, NeoGenomics will benefit from early access to the new Oncomine Myeloid Assay GX v2 test from Thermo Fisher to validate the test on the Genexus system. Thermo Fisher introduced the Oncomine GX v2 myeloid test at 63e American Society of Hematologists (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Atlanta December 11-14. The test is designed to optimize the detection of variants, covering key genes and fusions across the myeloid cancer spectrum.
Mark Mallon, CEO of NeoGenomics, said: “We have worked with Thermo Fisher Scientific in several genomics initiatives and are excited to leverage their Genexus system to deliver comprehensive genomic data at unprecedented speed. By reducing the time to results from weeks to days, we can ensure researchers have the data they need to accelerate progress as they seek to develop much-needed myeloid cancer treatments. to come up. “
“Myeloid cancers such as acute myeloid leukemia present unique challenges due to their heterogeneity and the complexity of their samples,” said Garret Hampton, president of clinical sequencing and oncology, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “NGS allows researchers to profile all key mutations simultaneously, saving time compared to sequential testing on a single gene. By combining the speed of the Genexus system with the expertise and data services of NeoGenomics, we hope to advance discoveries that will inform future therapeutic development for patients who desperately need new treatment options. “
NeoGenomics continues to be a leader with lightning-fast NGS options for oncology research and was one of the early adopters of the Genexus system. It is also one of the first oncology reference laboratories to offer the OncomineDx target test in their menu of clinical diagnostic tests.
