HTG EdgeSeq Precision Immuno-Oncology Panel
HTG Molecular Diagnostics has launched the HTG EdgeSeq Precision Immuno-Oncology Panel, a research-use-only profiling panel that provides a large, comprhensive set of genes involved in the host immune response to tumors. Using a single 5-µm formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue section, the panel profiles 1,392 genes, without the RNA extraction and complex workflow associated with standard RNA-seq methods. Researchers can use the panel to go from raw sample to sequencing-ready libraries in as little as 36 hours, with less than four hours of hands-on time, HTG said. Applications include the immunophenotyping of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes; monitoring of immunotherapy response biomarkers; and the elucidation of immune-escape mechanisms known to drive disease progression.
