Lucence Diagnostics Plasma EGFR C797S Mutation Detection Assay
Lucence Diagnostics has launched its plasma EGFR C797S non-invasive mutation detection assay for clinical use in Southeast Asia. The assay is based on Lucence's proprietary Lumi-ARMS technology, and rapidly detects the presence of the EGFR C797S mutation which is linked with osimertinib resistance in EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer. The assay can be used with blood and cerebrospinal fluid and features a sensitivity of up to 0.01 percent, the company said. The assay is also currently available as part of the Lucence LiquidTrack test offered through the company's reference laboratory in Singapore.
