Advancing Precision in Cancer Diagnostics

Cancer is a complex disease requiring comprehensive answers. Only a comprehensive answer will allow medical professionals to make the highest quality care decisions for their patients.  At Genomic Testing Cooperative we analyze both DNA and RNA which gives the best possible answers based on our current knowledge. Our tests detect all biomarkers.

GTC Provides Comprehensive Answers

Genomic Tests 
Menu Overview

Next-generation sequencing of DNA, RNA and cell-free (cfDNA cfRNA) Profiling

Hematology

Comprehensive Hematologic Molecular Profiling enables the detection and differentiation of driver and sub-clonal mutations, determines prognosis and identifies targeted therapies for personalized medicine.

Solid Tumor

GTC offers comprehensive NGS testing for solid tumors. Our assays cover all clinically relevant genes including tumor mutation burden (TMB), MSI, HRD, fusion/translocations, copy number variation, amplification, and deletions.

Liquid Biopsy

Comprehensive Liquid Biopsy genomic testing performed on cell-free DNA (cfDNA) and cell-free RNA (cfRNA) to identify molecular abnormalities in 302 genes. The tests reduce the need for bone marrow biopsy.

Our genomic testing is focused on comprehensive profiling of DNA and RNA in hematologic neoplasms and solid tumors, embracing the latest sequencing technology and informatics tools, thereby providing better insights into the patient’s tumor signature.

  • GTC’s RNA sequencing capabilities go beyond just the detection of fusions and include alternative splicing, gene expression and prediction.
  • Our RNA profiling can be used to complement flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing. GTC’s capabilities include liquid biopsy testing that give physicians testing options when tissue or bone marrow isn’t available.
  • GTC’s informatics tools use artificial intelligence with sophisticated algorithms to interpret complex data sets; these informatics tools are unmatched anywhere on the market today.

Both solid tumors (lung, colon, breast, etc) and hematologic malignancies (leukemia, multiple myeloma, etc) have molecular profiling tests available.

All major types of cancer have molecular testing that can be performed on them but the sample requirements will be different.

Machine/Deep Learning Meets Next Generation Sequencing

Genomic Testing Cooperative is creating a new kind of disruptive business model. We utilize advanced next-generation sequencing techniques and AI to offer the most innovative testing to our customers. Our co-op model allows customers to select a level of service that suits their oncology testing requirements including:

1. An in-house genomics lab managed by GTC
2. Cooperative Associate
3. Reference lab 

Genomic testing is expensive and risky for smaller labs because of its complexity and rapidly changing information. Competing with larger labs is challenging to get scale for profitable operations and will face different billing challenges than routine tests.

GTC alleviates those risks and challenges for our customers handling innovation, medical oversight, operations, and billing. All GTC tests are medicare approved

GTC has created a co-op model to reduce sales, operations, and service costs – the biggest impediment to profitability. We share our resources with you to cut down overhead. We have a level of membership that works for the smallest labs up to the biggest reference labs.

To learn more reach out for a capabilities presentation.

Most labs work on a basis where a client sends a sample and the lab bills either the client or the patient. The relationship is purely transactional.

 

GTC allows members to join, share resources, share knowledge, have a voice in GTC and collaborate in a community environment. The Co-op model produces big data for AI analysis creating value for hospitals, research, drug development, and other involved in cancer care.

Cooperatively we can all work together to improve community access to comprehensive genomic profiling and advance scientific discovery

Genomic Testing Cooperative works with laboratories, hospitals, pathologists, oncologists, and other medical professionals to improve access to cutting edge technology in genomic testing at an affordable price by sharing resources and expertise.

Gain access to advanced technology, molecular expertise, and a pipeline for innovation and development of new tests.

Genomic Testing Cooperative utilizes technology innovations that integrate artificial intelligence and proprietary algorithms within our informatics tools.  These tools enable faster turnaround times of results, comprehensive reporting including targeted and immunotherapy recommendations and clinical trial options.

Advantages of Liquid Biopsy compared to Bone Marrow Biopsy

Liquid Biopsy
Bone Marrow Biopsy

Pain free | Non-Invasive | Easily Obtained | Fast | Risk free | Accurate | Comprehensive Genomic Profile | Low Cost

Liquid biopsy has the advantages of non-invasive, rapid, precise, and especially real-time. Liquid biopsies utilize genetic sequencing for many purposes in oncology. They can be uniquely used as a screening tool for early detection either by testing the entire sample for mutations, or looking for specific mutations in the sample.
The emergence of non-invasive diagnostic techniques for tumors, such as liquid biopsy, marks a major step forward for humans on the road to conquering tumors. From the 2016 Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of the first liquid biopsy products based on EGFR gene mutations, by August 2018, tumor mutation burden in blood (bTMB) was confirmed to predict the effectiveness of immunotherapy, and liquid biopsy has already made a big splash in the field of cancer treatment.It can also overcome the heterogeneity of tumors and may replace tissue biopsy in the future. Liquid biopsy has broad application prospects in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, including early diagnosis screening, tumor heterogeneity, drug resistance, and establishment of targets.

Involves Pain | Invasive | Localized Sampling of  Tissue | Not Easily Obtained | Time consuming | Some Risk Involved | Expensive

Bone marrow biopsies require solid matter from the body. This specimen is removed from bone marrow. An anesthetic may be used: local to numb area of extraction for pain, or general to make the patient unconscious. Technique involve needles and other endoscopic tools. Specimen extraction from the body require surgical methods. As a result, side effects can include risk of infection, internal bleeding, or prolonged recovery time.

Bone marrow biopsies ant Tumor biopsies used to be irreplaceable in identifying the nature of tumors: type of cancer, gene expression of the tumor, and presence of treatment-resistant mutations. However, that is affected by several components of origin, such as tumor location, tissue amount available, and accessibility for surgical removal. The instable nature of tumors makes them heterogeneous, which means tissue from a certain area of the tumor may have radically different mutations and genetic expressions than other areas. This provides inaccurate information.

NGS is Enabling Medical Breakthroughs

Next generation sequencing has changed medicine in the past decade in ways most people couldn’t imagine. It has allowed a rapid evolution to the field of precision medicine with new drugs with being approved regularly. However, it has previously been cost prohibitive with many insurance companies not covering testing. The data sets it produced were also hard to interpret and understand due to their size, complexity and lack of historical data.

We have now reached a time where we can utilize genomic testing in a cost-effective matter. The tools are now available to make sense of the complex data. There is a large database of samples to look at and compare. In essence, we are at the tipping point of a deep understanding of cancer which we have never had before in human history and are making therapies that have the potential to cure the disease.
