Unlocking More Blood Cancer Insights with NGS

Elderly couple with their bikes

 

 


Each year, an estimated 1.28 million people are diagnosed with a blood cancer, accounting for roughly 6% of all new cancer cases worldwide1.

These challenging disorders are genetically complex, often harboring a range of somatic mutations. In recent years, studies have uncovered a multitude of disease-associated genetic alterations that are fueling precision-oncology research and progressing hope for a better future in managing these diseases.

 

Traditional molecular testing involves iterative single-analyte approaches, complex workflows, all of which results in variable, often lengthy, turnaround times.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized the study of  hematologic malignancies by streamlining genetic profiling. NGS allows for efficient, simultaneous assessment of multiple genetic biomarkers with a single assay. Advancements in NGS automation enable results to now be available in as fast as 1-2 days.
