NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Taiwanese diagnostics firm PlexBio said today that it received CE marking for its IntelliPlex Lung Cancer Panel, an in vitro molecular diagnostic assay for the qualitative identification of 36 DNA mutations.

The assay can identify mutations in the KRAS, NRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and EGFR genes, as well as 19 gene rearrangements of the ALK, ROS1, RET, NTRK1, and MET genes from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor tissue from lung cancer patients, PlexBio said. It added that the assay leverages its SelectAmp and πCode technologies.
