Cancer Genetics Focus::Renal

Cancer Genetics has launched Focus::Renal, a next-generation sequencing panel for personalized medicine in renal cancers. The panel, developed in collaboration with leading cancer centers and academic institutions, is a comprehensive and accurate genomic profiling tool covering the majority of renal cancer markers and pathways. It detects mutations in 76 renal cancer-related genes, genome-wide copy number changes, and critical single nucleotide polymorphisms, enabling clinicians to diagnose, give a prognosis, and select therapies for renal cancer patients. Focus::Renal can also be used to distinguish among the dominant three malignant and one benign renal cancer subtypes.
