GATC Biotech OncoPanel All-In-One

GATC Biotech has launched the OncoPanel All-in-One, a cancer gene panel for liquid biopsy and tissue biopsy samples. The next-generation sequencing panel enables the accurate detection of clinically actionable mutations and structural rearrangements for solid tumors, including lung, colon, breast, ovarian, melanoma, and gastrointestinal tumors. It covers the exons of 597 genes and selected promoter regions to identify clinically relevant mutations, including single nucleotide polymorphisms, insertions and deletions, copy number variations, and gene fusion events.
