Ohio State University's Pathology Lab to Use GenomOncology's Workbench for NGS Cancer Panels

Premium

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – GenomOncology said this week that the pathology department at Ohio State University's college of medicine is using the GO Clinical Workbench to support its next-generation sequencing-based cancer panels.

"The GO Clinical Workbench has helped us reduce the time to develop a clinically actionable report from half a day to less than an hour," Pamela Groen, a laboratory manager at Ohio State, said in a statement.

GenomOncology's software enables molecular pathology labs analyze tumor profiles and generate actionable clinical report. The platform is installed within institutions' firewalls and is configured to each lab's specific needs including integration with laboratory systems, setting up of quality control and annotation parameters, and custom design clinical reports.

The system is also being used at CompanionDx and Cleveland's University Hospitals.
