Find-It is a next-generation sequencing-based multiplex assay that screens for 90 mutations across 29 known cancer genes and analyzes eight exons of three genes to help clinicians select the best treatment for a specific patient, recognize acquired drug-resistant mutations, and determine prognostic and diagnostic implications for patient care.
