Changing the Precision Oncology Research Paradigm with Genexus

With traditional NGS, long turnaround times (TAT) of 4+ weeks and high failure rates due to quantity not sufficient (QNS) are common. The Ion Torrent™ Genexus™ System is a better testing solution: it decreases TAT to as little as 1 day from sample to results,* and essentially eliminates QNS failure, achieving success using tissue samples as small as 10 ng. Join us to learn how the Genexus System can improve your lab’s efficiency and increase your testing success rates.

 

By the conclusion of this session you will understand:

  • A pathologist’s perspective on the importance of in-house NGS testing for precision oncology research
  • The importance of getting results as fast as possible for the maximum number of samples
  • Benefits of the Genexus System in a post‑pandemic laboratory
  • Financial and operational impacts of the Genexus System for in-house genomic profiling

 

Learning Objectives:

     1. Understand the value of the Genexus in a post-pandemic environment

     2. Explore the financial & operational impacts of the Ion Torrent Genexus™ System for in-house

         genomic profiling


This virtual meeting will be conducted within OncomineWorld in our virtual auditorium. OncomineWorld is so much more than your traditional virtual event – you can navigate to many different areas and experience a new level of virtual interactivity. Within OncomineWorld you can…
