Time Matters on Health Tests [TAT-NGS]

Turn Around Time, Turnaround Time, TAT, NGS (Next Generation Sequencing), Next-Gen, NGS, TTI (Time to Treatment Initiation), GTC

We’re always competing with ourselves on improving turn around time (TAT) because we know patients depend on the results Most studies suggest that treatment delay leads to a worse outcome Patients with cancer who have to wait longer for treatment suffer from significant anxiety and stress Physicians and patients deserve to get the results of […]

Study shows that RNA Plus DNA profiling significantly enhanced Drug Matching

RNA Plus DNA profiling significantly enhanced Drug Matching

Recent study published in Nature Medicine (Rodon et al, Nature Medicine volume 25, pages 751–758, 2019) showed that molecular profiling using both DNA and RNA significantly enhanced therapy recommendation and patient outcome.  A third of the studied patients got drug therapy recommendation when both RNA and DNA testing was performed. Genomic testing cooperative (GTC) offers […]
