07:06 EDTTBIOTransgenomic plans to launch six new genetic cancer tests this year
Transgenomic announced that it is planning to launch up to six new genetic cancer tests this year based on its Multiplexed ICE COLD-PCR, or MX-ICP, technology. The new tests will focus on actionable genetic mutations and alterations in patients with melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer, or NSCLC, and colorectal cancer, and will include both single tests and multi-gene panels. Transgenomic’s MX-ICP technology has demonstrated exceptional sensitivity and accuracy using either standard tissue or liquid biopsy samples such as blood and plasma. The tests are expected to be available for diagnostic use through Transgenomic’s CLIA-certified laboratory. “We are ahead of schedule in commercializing our pipeline of laboratory-based cancer tests to meet the growing demand for targeted and personalized cancer treatments,” said Paul Kinnon, president and CEO of Transgenomic. “The unsurpassed accuracy of our Multiplexed ICE COLD-PCR technology and its ability to produce highly sensitive and accurate results from small amounts of virtually any type of patient sample enable its broad use for tumor detection and monitoring. The fact that MX-ICP is a platform technology is also facilitating the rapid development of our pipeline. We intend to release two or three new single and panel tests per quarter for the remainder of this year, focusing on the two most prevalent cancers--colorectal and lung, as well as melanoma, which is especially amenable to targeted therapies.”
