NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Thermo Fisher Scientific has received CE-IVD marking for its next-generation sequencing-based Oncomine Solid Tumor Fusion Transcript kit.

The kit makes use of the Ion AmpliSeq technology and detects rearrangements involving ALK, ROS-1, RET, and NTRK1 genes. Researchers within Thermo's OncoNetwork Consortium worked with Thermo Fisher to develop the kit and validate it for lung cancer.

The kit is amenable for use with formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue and requires as little as 10 ng of RNA.
