Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS).  Advancing Precision Oncology.

While it began as a revolutionary research tool a decade ago, NGS is now the method of choice for simultaneous genomic profiling of multiple cancer markers.  For hospitals, the advantages of NGS over traditional methods are indisputable in terms of time savings, tissue perservation, and a precision oncology approach to patient care. 

NGS In-House Advantages

With NGS testing in-house, you no longer have to give up your samples and rely on outside labs, which can take weeks and potentially lead to high failure rates.  With your sample and testing expertise onsite, your multidisciplinary team is always empowered with the information they need to tailor patient treatments for better outcomes.
