Genomic Health
IBC Life Sciences

Genomic Health is transitioning from RT-PCR to Next-Generation Sequencing as the basis for its development of cancer diagnostic tests. This poses both great opportunities and significant challenges.

  • Learn about tests that address critical questions in cancer treatment planning
  • Learn about Genomic Health's cancer mutation strategy

Genomic Health, a molecular diagnostics company, is committed to improving the quality of cancer treatment decisions through the research, development and commercialization of genomic-based clinical laboratory services. To that end, the company conducts sophisticated genomic research to develop clinically-validated molecular diagnostics which provide individualized information on response to certain types of therapy, as well as the likelihood of disease recurrence. These diagnostic technologies generate information that healthcare providers and patients can use in making treatment decisions.

Presenter:
